Turnip Salad in Sour Cream Recipe. Usually served cooked, raw young tender turnips have a tangy, slightly peppery flavour. Serve this as an accompaniment for grilled poultry or meat. It is also delicious as a light appetizer, garnished with parsley and paprika, and served with warmed flat breads such as pita bread. Garnish the salad with fresh flat leaf parsley and paprika, if you like.
