I think one of my favorite parts about summer is the farmer’s market re-opening. Sadly, we don’t live in one of those cool cities where they have an indoor market that is open all year round. Our city would rather spend money on casinos than fruits and veggies. Why do I live here again?

My daughter and I frequented the farmers market from the date it opened, but in the beginning there wasn’t a lot of variety for fresh produce. I picked up some beets, and the farmer convinced me to try some turnips as well. We had never had turnips before, so I had to come up with a new recipe.

I have been tinkering with a honey Dijon recipe for quite a while, and the tangy sweetness seems like a perfect complement for the root vegetables. I use Lemon Vitality essential oil in this dressing, but you could sub 2 T of lemon juice if you don’t have the essential oil on hand. Personally, I love the vibrant taste the essential oils infuse into foods.

I think the best part about this dish is that virtually every part of it came from the farmers market. What does that mean? That means it is all clean, whole food that doesn’t have an ingredient label on it. Oh, and it’s really tasty. That’s also a plus. To prevent heating your house up with the oven, try roasting the veggies in a convection oven.
