Japanese salad turnips, oh how I love you. I didn’t even know these little gems existed until I first got them in my csa box. Now I look forward to them every time, and wish they came more often.

The recipe I use, if I’m not just eating them raw, is Salad Turnips with Miso, from the Golden Earthworm Farm’s blog. I alter the recipe ever so slightly by using only 1/3 cup of water, this makes the sauce thicker. Also, because the size of a bunch of turnips can vary, I add the miso butter somewhat gradually, tasting as I go to make sure it doesn’t get too salty. You can easily substitute rice wine vinegar for the mirin.
