Turnip, Carrot, Gruyere Cheese Salad
How about a nice crunchy salad after all those holiday treats? I have even made the turnips and carrots into shreds and it is just as tasty!
Turnip, peeled and cut into matchsticks, you will only use part of large one.
1 carrot, peeled and cut into matchsticks
3 green onions, trimmed and cut into long strips the size of the turnips and carrots
1/4 pound of Gruyere cheese, cut into matchsticks
1 head of romaine lettuce, washed, dried and cut into thin slivers (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lemon juiced
salt and pepper
If you are adding lettuce to the mix, first toss the greens in a medium bowl with a little olive oil and lemon juice, then divide between plates. As you prepare the vegetables, divide them evenly on top of the greens (or onto the plates if you are not including lettuce), then drizzle with remaining olive oil and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and peppe
