|Cider vinegar||2 Tablespoon|
|Dry mustard/Dijon mustard||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Ground nutmeg||1 Pinch|

1. In a serving bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard, nutmeg, paprika, and lemon juice. Quarter, core, and cube the pears, and add them to the dressing.
2. Peel the turnips and coarsely shred them, using the second coarsest side of a four-sided grater. (You should have about 2 cups.) Add the turnips to the pears and dressing.
