Sheila Neal, Matt Neal's wife, has always loved turnips. "They were my show-and-tell in kindergarten; I showed my class how to season them with salt and eat them," she says. These elegant baby turnips—roasted to bring out their sweetness—can be served warm or cold.

  1. 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
  3. 1 scallion, minced
  4. 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  5. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. 24 baby turnips (2 pounds), stems trimmed to 2 inches
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard, scallion, parsley and 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a rimmed baking sheet in the oven. Cut the turnips in half through the stems; quarter them if large. In a large bowl, toss the turnips with the remaining 1/4 cup of oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread the turnips on the preheated baking sheet and roast for about 18 minutes, until tender. Transfer the turnips to a platter and let cool. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve.
