Was looking for a creative way to eat turnips that kill a little bit of the sweetness and found this...wonderful....was cooking sweet and sour pork anyway and threw a tiny salad together with the turnips from my garden and even though I burnt the greens a bit, we wanted more! Will be making this again when the next crop comes in :)
