  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, pureed with salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 lb red potatoes, cleaned
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb turnip green leaves, washed
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. Place the potatoes in a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are cooked through (approx. 20-25 minutes). Drain potatoes and let cool slightly.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil with the olive oil. Add the greens and boil for 5 minutes, until done to taste.
  4. Drain well and chop coarsely. Place warm greens and potatoes in a shallow mixing bowl, drizzle with the dressing and toss well to coat.
  5. Serve warm or room temperature.
