When I first started thinking about this post,  it was really intended to be about Hakurei Turnips. Sometimes called Tokyo turnips, or Salad Turnips.  They are often referred to as a “salad turnip” because of its crisp and cool crunch and peppery earthy flavor.

I once asked a grower, what his favorite way to prepare these and he told me he loved to eat them like he would an apple, biting into them raw and whole right out of the garden.  So I gave it a shot and was so amazed!  Crisp, crunchy, juicy, this turnip won me over immediately. If you’re a radish fan, you will love these, I promise!

Many of you have asked for healthy snack ideas, and this Farmers Market Veggie Platter is what I turn to most often. It satisfies my cravings- especially the one where I just want to mindlessly crunch while watching Netflix. 🙂

Make it with one of the several dip options below… Creamy Cilantro Lime, Smoky Paprika Dip, or the Vegan Cilantro Lime.

For those of you watching calories or cholesterol – a healthy, clean option is to forgo the dip altogether and make it Mexican Street Food style. Squeeze lime juice all over the veggies,  sprinkle with salt and chili powder. A healthy and satisfying snack!

The BEST Cilantro Lime Dip:

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

or try Mexican Style Seasonings!


Instructions

Arrange chopped veggies on a plate.

Choose a dip or tow- or try the lean Mexican Style option.

If making the cilantro lime dips ( either vegan or regular) blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Both of these Dip recipes make bigger batches. ( serves 6)

The Smokey Paprika Dip can be stirred in a bowl with a fork. Serves 1-2

Mexican Style- squeeze lime or lemon over the veggies, season with salt, pepper and chili powder. Sprinkle any additional options – cilantro, cumin, coriander over top.


Notes

The healthiest fastest option is to go “Mexican style” with lime, salt and chili powder.

The tastiest option- is the Cilantro Lime Dip with Sour Cream and Mayo.
