Salad turnips are another of the "bonus" vegetables - both the greens and roots are delicious. I cut tops from roots and store separately. Eat the greens soon for peak nutrition. I add a bit to salads, braise them with the beet tops and add to soups. I tend to slice and salt the roots for a quick pickle. They are also tasty in a stir fry or steamed with butter and cream.
