Purple Top Turnip & Apple Slaw



  • 2 purple top turnips

  • 1 apple (whatever variety you prefer)

  • 1/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 1/2 lemon


  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tsp dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon honey (sub agave or maple syrup if you don’t use honey)

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

  • salt + pepper to taste


  1. Julienne apples and turnips - Peel turnips and slice into 1/4 inch slices.  Stack slices on top of each other cut as thin as you can into “matchsticks”.  Repeat with unpeeled apple.  (or use mandolin).  Place in large bowl, and squeeze 1/2 lemon over so apples don’t turn brown.

  2. Make dressing -  Combine remaining ingredients except pumpkin seeds in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.  Shake until combined.

  3. Pour dressing over slaw -  Mix pumpkin seeds, dressing, and slaw until combined.
