Italian Carrot Salad


  • 1 lb Carrots
  • 1 cup turnip tops (we cut off about ¾ of the tops off our bunch this week)
  • 3 Tbsp T Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup Garbanzo Beans
  • 2 cloves of Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • ½ cup sliced almonds


  1. Use a potato peeler or food processor (using the shredding disk) to shred the carrots into long, thin strips.
  2. In food processor, combine turnip tops, garlic and garbanzo beans and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  3. Add to bowl with carrots.
  4. To make the dressing, whisk the red wine vinegar, olive oil, sugar salt and pepper together.
  5. If your oil and vinegar are separating, add a small clump of the garbanzo mixture to the dressing. The added bulk will help to properly emulsify your dressing.
