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.
3. Wash the lettuce, pat it dry with paper toweling, then tear it into bite-size pieces. Add it to the salad and toss well until nicely dressed.
