In a large bowl, combine romaine lettuce and cilantro. Divide greens onto four plates.
Cut parsnips, carrots, and turnips to desired size. Place them in 1 quart of boiling water. Return water to a simmer, and cook vegetables for 2 minutes. Strain into a colander.
Just before serving, mix all of the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
Place hot vegetables on top of greens and top with dressing.
