Mushroom Salad, 'Shroom Salad

Making some ‘Shroom Salad for a late lunch today. Sooo easy to make and tastes so fresh! And look how pretty it is too!

Mushroom Salad, 'Shroom Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1/4 small Red Onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup Parsley (fresh), chopped
  • 2 T Olive Oil
  • 1 small Lemon, for juicing (or 1/2 large)
  • A few shakes of Black Pepper
  • A few shakes of Oregano
  • 4-6 Fresh Spinach Leaves, chopped, optional

Directions – Salad

  1. Obviously, already sliced mushrooms is the easiest way to go. (If you only have whole mushrooms on hand, then you will need about 4-6 mushrooms to make a cup, depending on size. DO NOT wash your mushrooms as they retain moisture. Instead, dampen a paper towel and wipe them clean.)
  2. Toss the mushrooms, red onion & parsley together in a small bowl and set aside.

Some Tips:

  • Another way to mix your dressing would be using a small container with a lid & shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. This is my fave method although please take a lesson & hold the lid closed while shaking! 🙂
  • Squeeze lemons cut-side up in the palm of your hand over your other hand to help catch pits or you can also squeeze them over a small strainer.
  • You can garnish this salad with some fresh chopped basil if you like.
