When the heat turns-up, cool down with this refreshing summer salad!

Turnips aren’t often considered when it comes to adding more veg to your diet but they are one of my fave root veggies and I love them raw! They grow super easy and fast in a home garden and are easy to find at your local farmers market. I love the fresh little salad turnips in the spring that are crunchy and a little spicy and I use them like a raw radish, thinly sliced into salads. This slaw uses grated spring turnips along with fresh carrots and crispy apples making this a naturally sweet and tangy summer salad. I have used both fresh parsley and mint as herbs in this salad and both are great but I lean towards the mint, choose your preference. Full of fiber, vitamin C, beta carotene and a host of other anti-oxidant heroes, this salad makes a great summer side for any occasion.
