Aren't they the cutest, fuzziest little guys?
And this is what they look like just after being briefly steamed. They taste a bit like edamame, very grassy and somewhat sweet.
They inspired the salad below. All but the lettuce came from the Exchange as well.
The Exchange has the freshness and variety of the Greenmarket without hustle and bustle!
Note: Thanks to Melissa Clark of the New York Times for inspiring me to eat raw turnips!
The salad is made of these vegetables:
raw sliced baby turnips
raw sliced red and yellow (small, sweet) piquillo peppers
raw green leaf lettuce
steamed purple, red and white fingerling potatoes
steamed, shucked green garbanzo beans
