  4. Spread the labneh out in a serving dish. Top with the salad. Sprinkle with the basil. Serve immediately.


Jars of chopped garlic scapes are available in grocery stores. They can be replaced here with ½ tsp chopped garlic.

Select turnips with small green tops, which tend to be less bitter. If the tops are too big, simply omit them from the recipe.
