Parsnips and Greens

Parsnips and Greens is a really good recipe when tender sweet parsnips are available at the markets or from your garden. It’s a great change up from the traditional green salad and is very hearty and filling for a salad. I have served it here with a turmeric guacamole dressing that really adds flavor and gives it that stick to your ribs quality.

1 head of romaine lettuce slaw cut

1 or 2 parsnips shredded

2 carrots shredded

2 handfuls of fresh bean sprouts

1 to 2 cucumbers shredded

1 handful of dulse torn into small pieces

Toss all ingredients into a large salad bowl and dress with your favorite raw salad dressing. I use a simple box grater to shred, but you could use a food processor.

Turmeric Guacamole Dressing

1 lime juiced

1” chunk of fresh ginger root finely diced or grated

1 ripe avocado

1 tablespoon of turmeric

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl and mash with a fork until well mixed. Add a little water if needed to thin. Pour over the salad and toss until well mixed. This is a good recipe for a potluck as the texture softens with time and it travels very well.
