Just like my Jicama Fries and Zucchini Fries, these turnip fries are low calorie and delicious. You get to enjoy your treat without the guilt. The beauty is turnips are plenty here in Florida this time of the year.
I purchased turnip greens including the roots from the local market, used the leafy greens to make my Southern-Style Mixed Greens recipe, then use the roots to make this amazing turnip fries recipe.
