This makes more than a single serving, but then a good salad is nice to have for snacks and side dishes. The main ingredients all came from Harvest Share. Because marinating is important to its flavor, it’s better the second day.
- 1 large turnip, peeled and diced into small pieces.
- 5-6 stalks of celery chopped.
You want equal parts of turnip and celery, so cut enough celery to make as much bulk as the turnip.
- 2 apples, chopped (You want about half as much apple as turnip by bulk.)
Meanwhile, toast some pumpkin seeds with a bit of oil and salt. Toast until they start popping like popcorn. Put on a towel and pat dry so they don’t have oil on them.
Mix the apples, turnips, and celery together. Add dressing made from
- 1 fresh lemon, squeezed juice
- 3 TBSP apple cider vinegar
- 3 TBSP olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Stir together and then add toasted pumpkin seeds. Let sit overnight.
This is a delicious salad with lots of crunch and chew. The turnip adds a bit of tang, the apples add sweetness to balance the turnips and the celery gives us crunch and earthiness. The pumpkin seeds add a bit of meaty, nutty, and salty snappy crunch. I love how the flavors marry together.
