Paleo “Potato” Salad

Turnip

One thing many people (including myself) tend to miss when going paleo is potato salad. This is especially true during the summer months when “barbeque season” is in full swing. Last year, for Feed Your Vitality’s 4th of July Family Feast we had a great paleo-approved barbeque featuring “potato” salad made with turnips. We fed it to a group of employees, spouses, and kids – and it received a stamp of approval from all! Follow the recipe below to enjoy this “potato” salad at home.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Peel turnips and cut into bite-sized pieces. Coat with 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and put into a baking dish. Bake until turnips become soft, approximately 30 minutes, mixing halfway through. Set aside to cool.
