Last week when I was in Gaziantep I introduced one of my fellow travelers to şalgam. (Actually, I think I used the phrase "inflicted it upon him".)
Before I left town, I made him promise to introduce our mutual friend Sara to şalgam. He did so. Above is a photo of her trying the stuff. She titled the photo, "Şalgam…the awful experience". The sadistic side of me laughed out loud when I saw the photo.
