Don't Underestimate Your Kids | Pickled Turnips and Yellow Cherry Tomatoes
So what IS this dish you ask??
It is a simple pickled salad of raw turnip and yellow tomato. The marinade, pickling "juice" is a basic salad dressing and it infuses the veggies (Especially the turnips!) with a tart flavor. I suppose the flavor would intensify if you left the salad in the fridge for a few days, but ours lasted but an evening.
Pickled Veggie Salad
2 cups of Cherry Tomatoes (I used yellow!), washed, not peeled
2 medium turnips, peeled and julienned
1 T Spicy Brown Mustard
1 T Lemon Juice
1 T White Vinegar
2 T Olive Oil
1/2 c Water
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
Mix ingredients and let the flavors meld in the fridge overnight. Serve cold or room temperature. Easy Breezy!
