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.
Put the salad greens into a serving bowl, and pour the warm mushroom mixture over them. Toss to blend, and serve immediately.
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
