I grow turnips for their delicious greens. But I get the roots as a by-product and need to find something to use them for. Not being too fond of cooked, mashed turnips, I'm playing with salad variations. This one is tangy and sweet with just a bit of bite from the sweet hot mustard. "Cooking" time is chilling time.
