Warm mushroom salad

    15 min

    This is a warm salad - cooked mushrooms poured over mixed greens. The warm mushrooms are supposed to wilt the lettuce a bit.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 150g sliced fresh mushrooms
    • 1 clove garlic, chopped (optional)
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 (120g) bags herb salad (or continental salad mix)

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan 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 salad greens into a serving bowl, and pour the warm mushroom mixture over them. Toss to blend, and serve immediately.

    Bit behind, but, made this tonight and the other half loved it. The balsamic I used had a bit of whisky in it gorgeous  -  28 Sep 2016


    The recipe itself is delicious and quick & simple. However, the recipe states this is for 4 people - which would be fine as a starter. However, I used the same quantities given and it fed 2 of us - and yet still could have done with some more. I would suggest you use 1/2 as much again as stated in the recipe to feed 2 as a main course.  -  21 Jun 2009


    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. Chicken slivers or boiled shrimp would be great and make it a meal in itself! Wow! I could have this one every day!  -  12 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
