This is one of my favorite foods
to snack on.
Long time ago in Szechuan, there
would be these small street
vendors who sold this type of
turnip salad to kids.
I used to buy it all the time. For a
few pennies, I could buy a handful
and munch on them. When I had no money, Id search high and
low in my house for pennies.
Too bad these vendors arent around anymore I guess you cant
really make a living selling food for a few pennies these days.
Now Im going to show you how to make this turnip salad. I
hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.


Salted turnip 400g (1pack)
Sugar 4 6 teaspoons
Light soy sauce 1 tablespoon (optional)
Green onions 3 4
Chili oil 3 5 teaspoons
Grinded peppercorn 1 2 teaspoons
Sesame oil 4 6 teaspoons
1. Rinse the turnips under water first to wash of any salt.
2. Cut the turnips into 2inch long, thin strips. After you cut it,
run it through cold water one more time, and drain it well.
3. Cut the green onion into 1 inch long, thin strips.
4. In a bowl, mix sugar, soy sauce, chili oil, grinded peppercorn,
and sesame oil.
5. Mix the green onions with the turnip.
6. Pour on the sauce, and mix well with the turnips, and serve.
Note: After youve mixed in the sauce with the turnips, I
recommend you store this dish for several hours first before
Why? This is because allowing it to sit for a few hours lets the
flavors really soak into the turnips.
Also, you can refrigerate it. I like eating it colder.
