I forgot to add the toasted hazelnuts! Was still one of the best salads I have ever had. Oh! I used half portobellos and half buttons because that's what I had on hand. I'd bet any mix of mushrooms would work well. Delicious! Read More

The overall flavor of this was quite good. i didn't have enough bacon drippings and was glad i didn't. i used the 2 tablesp in the dressing(all i really had left over) and did not add any additional oil to make up for it. i cooked the mushrooms in olive oil. next time i will lessen the amount of olive oil as well in the dressing as it was much to oily for my taste and some of the sweetness from the balsamic was lost. Also added thin slices red pepper sautéed with the mushroom for additional color and texture. i served it with grilled salmon for protein. Read More

Loved the flavors only used half the amount of mushrooms oranges and greens didn't use any olive oil. Added half an avocado. Had way more dressing than needed but loved the wilted greens in this. Will try it again! Read More
