Warm Mushroom Salad

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"This is a warm salad: cooked mushrooms poured over mixed greens. The warm mushrooms are supposed to wilt the lettuce a bit. I use the pre-packaged mixed colorful lettuce. A different salad, but a good one that is done in no time if you want to try something new."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, and cook stirring until soft. Continue cooking until the juices from the mushrooms have reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Stir in the remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper until evenly blended. Turn off heat, and let the mushrooms sit in the pan until they are just warm, but no longer hot - otherwise the greens will wilt too much.
  2. Put the baby greens into a serving bowl, and pour the warm mushroom mixture over them. Toss to blend, and serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I tried a similar salad at an Italian restaurant, but they used oyster mushrooms. You can use white button mushrooms, crimini mushrooms, or oyster mushrooms.

Absolutely delicious. I added some blue cheese and chopped pecans. Sauteed two cloves of garlic with the mushrooms. This would work with fresh spinach or mixture of spring greens and spinach. ...

Perhaps I did something wrong. 10 oz of greens was excessive for the amount of dressing, the ratio was way off. I would also consider blancing the greens before adding the dressing to remove the...

I've made a similar salad myself many times before, and this one tastes great as well! I added also some fresh basil leaves in my salad.

OK, this was REALLY GOOD! I added some cherry tomatoes for good measure, but love the balsamic in the sauteed 'shrooms! Will definitely make again! Thanks!

CRAZY GOOD. One of the best salads I've had in a long time. The recipe didn't specify which kind of mushrooms to use, I used baby bellas which have a "beefy" taste which was really outstanding w...

I like this a lot... It's pretty close to the ones I've had in restaurants. I used portobello mushrooms and I topped it with some soft feta (or goat cheese) like in the restaurant.
