It’s an unlikely scenario—early season vegetables cooked at a low simmer to amplify their fresh flavors—but it works.
If you’ve never eaten turnips raw before, you will love their slightly peppery, earthy flavor, especially when combined with the radishes and raw asparagus.
If you don’t have sugar snaps, the carrots and radishes are great partners à deux, but the peas add a nice texture and make a Palm Beach (Lily Pulitzer) color combination.
Sweet and crisp, raw sugar snap peas are hard to resist. In this recipe they are chopped into bite-size pieces and paired with crispy chunks of radish, a bit of mint and crumbles of smooth, creamy, fresh cheese.
