This will be the third coleslaw recipe on this site – adding to Horseradish Coleslaw and KFC Copycat Coleslaw. Both use the standard cabbage and carrot mix, so here's something a little different: raw turnips!

Now I've made quite a few low carb and keto turnip recipes recently, but they've all used COOKED turnips. So, welcome to the world of eating them raw!

How to Make Turnip Coleslaw

Prepare the dressing by combining mayonnaise, sour cream, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, celery salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl.

Stir well to combine then set aside.

To prepare the turnips, first peel them. I used three turnips, which had a weight of 1lb 6oz unpeeled, which was just over 1lb when peeled and trimmed.

You can shred them but I preferred to make thin matchsticks by using my mandoline. I tried a julienne peeler and it was a LOT of work! The mandoline has a julienne blade attachment which worked perfectly.

After you have run them through the mandoline, roughly cut them in half to make shorter, more easy-to-eat sticks before adding them to the dressing.

When all the turnips had been cut, turn to coat in the dressing. Taste for seasoning and add more black pepper if necessary. Finally, add some chopped fresh chives.

The raw turnip has a mild but slightly peppery flavor that blends perfectly with the creamy dressing!
