Turnip Salad – Perfect Alternative to Potato Salad

This organic Turnip Salad replaces the carbohydrate-filled potato salad we are all accustomed to at parties and picnics. And it’s summertime and many of us are looking for ways to include healthier food choices in our meals.

What’s even better this Turnip Salad has the exact same eye appeal and texture as potato salad!

It’s a root vegetable in the Brassicaceae family (cabbage, broccoli, etc.) They can be light purple on top and white on the bottom, but there are more than 30 varieties with varying colors and shapes. Some are sweet, like a carrot, while others taste more like a potato.

With this wonderful vegetable, you can eat both the turnip’s root and the leafy greens on top. They’re both super healthy for you.
