I peel and cube the turnips (about 1/2 inch) and boil in water that has a couple splashes of pickle juice in it. Boil until very tender.
Then mix with lots of chopped boiled eggs, pickles, mayo, mustard and yep - pickle juice. I'm going thru Miracle Whip withdrawals so I like to add a pack of Splenda or two depending on how much I'm making.
I just ate this - tonight - so it's not just for summer. It is a great use of avocados. I can't recall where I got the recipe - but I'll tell you I'm not the originator. It is a favorite at our house.
I won't give carbs or measurements as it's all to tast pretty much.
In a bowl tear up some romaine lettuce into bites. Add diced avocado and diced chicken (or other leftover meat - I like grilled chicken best - but it's also great with shrimp (who has leftover shrimp?), fish filet, can of tuna etc.
Sprinkle with salt (should be a little heavy on the salt) - I used a sea salt grinder. Sprinkle with black pepper.
Drizzle with lemon juice - I used juice of 1/2 lemon - makes it quite tart.
Drizzle with olive oil - I like to be heavy a little on the oil - makes a nice mouth feel element.
Toss and devour. I'm best at the devour part.
