Tokyo Market Turnips Sunomono-Style
Never having purchased turnips, I was both excited and daunted by their appearance in my CSA box this week. But my confidence was bolstered by the accompanying newsletter - and suggestion by Chef Andrew for a turnip sunomo (vinegared salad). Tokyo Market Turnips are mild and thin-skinned. So, it's not even necessary to peel them, much less cook them. Perfect for a quick Sunday dinner.
Chef Andrew suggests sugar; I wanted other layers of flavor on top of the sweet, so I used ginger syrup and added chopped fresh dill.
