Embrace the Bitterness With This Shaved Turnip and Grapefruit Salad

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

Fruity and just slightly spicy, Aleppo pepper teams up with grapefruit juice in a knockout vinaigrette, providing the perfect balance for the raw turnips. Turnips are high in vitamin C and have a good amount of fiber, to boot.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons grapefruit juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Aleppo pepper
  • 3/8 teaspoon kosher salt
