Place a baking sheet in the oven, and heat to 450° F. Prepare your mise en place: Halve mushrooms. Remove stems from turnips, and quarter through stem end. Trim ends of onions, and thinly slice both green and white parts; keep separate. Halve and thinly slice radishes. Zest, halve and juice lemon. Pick thyme leaves. Pick and chop parsley leaves. Remove any roots from arugula, then cut or tear into bite sized pieces.
In a mixing bowl combine mushrooms, turnips, onion whites, 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Mix thoroughly. Carefully remove hot baking sheet from oven, and spread mushroom-turnip mixture evenly on it. Return pan to oven and roast 20 minutes, rotating baking sheet after 10 minutes.
While vegetables roast: In a large mixing bowl combine remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, soy sauce, and lemon zest and juice. Whisk well. Stir in onion greens and radishes; allow to marinate while mushrooms and turnips cook.
When mushrooms and turnips are done remove from oven, and immediately add to radish mixture.
Stir in walnuts and parsley, and thoroughly mix to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired with salt and pepper.
Allow salad to cool about 5 minutes. Add arugula and gently toss to combine. Divide salad between 2 plates, and enjoy!
