Turnip Green Salad

Turnip Green Salad


  • 1/4 cup J. Olive Co Champagne Balsamic

  • 2 Tbsp canned crushed tomatoes

  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped shallot (from 1 shallot)

  • 1 tsp chopped fresh sage

  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 1 tsp kosher salt

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 tsp hot sauce (such as Tabasco)

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 5 cups chopped fresh turnip greens (from 1 package or 1 bunch greens)

  • 4 cups purple cauliflower florets (from 1 head cauliflower)

  • 2 cups baby kale (2 oz)

  • 1 cup watermelon radishes, cut into thin strips (from 2 medium radishes)

  • 1 cup heirloom grape tomatoes, halved (from 1 pint)


  1. Stir together vinegar, crushed tomatoes, chopped shallot, sage, and lime juice in a medium bowl, and let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Whisk in honey, salt, Dijon mustard, and hot sauce. Add oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly, until smooth.

  3. Massage 1⁄4 cup of the vinaigrette into turnip greens, cauliflower, baby kale, radishes, and tomatoes, and let stand 10 minutes (to help tenderize the greens).

  4. Serve salad with remaining vinaigrette.
