Featured Veggie: JAPANESE SALAD TURNIPS (Hakurei Turnips)

The easiest and most nutritious way to eat these delicately flavored, crisp turnips is raw. Simply scrub, slice thinly and toss with your Allstar Gourmet Salad Mix and sliced Easter Egg Radishes and Dill herb. Flavor Enhancers: Lemon juice, vinegar, curry powder, chives, oregano, marjoram, thyme. Nutritional Value: Turnips contain potassium and iron and are a good source of vitamin C.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 3 medium turnips, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Red Bok Choi, coarsely chopped
  • Freshly ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
    In a saute pan, heat the oil with the garlic. Add the Japanese Turnips and raisins and cook for about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice; cover and cook for 3 more minutes. Stir in the Red Bok Choi and cook just until wilted. Sprinkle with nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.
