If you haven’t tried salad turnips (or even heard of them) don’t let the word “turnip” scare you away. Sometimes referred to (inaccurately) as white radishes, these little gems don’t really taste like either vegetable. Crunchy, nutty, and lightly sweet, they make a wonderful addition to salads, an alternative “dipping” vegetable or, as Kelsey from Rugged Roots calls them “vegetarian scallops”. See her very foodie preparation technique in the recipe below.
Please Note: The Wednesday market is now closing at 6:30 due to shorter daylight hours.

- 2 T Butter
- 2 cups Salad Turnips Cut into 1/2 inch rounds
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 T Maple syrup
Set oven on high broil.
In an oven-proof skillet melt butter over high heat. When the butter is completely melted add turnips making sure all pieces are touching the pans surface. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
Remove from heat, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Drizzle maple syrup over the turnips and place in oven for 5 minutes or until turnips are tender and can easily be pierced with a fork. Serve immediately and enjoy!
