Marinated Mixed Mushroom Salad

by jerseygirl on April 20, 2012 · 17 comments

This is what I ate for breakfast this morning. You’re probably thinking I posted the wrong picture. But, no, I am a mushroom lover. I bought these beautiful mushrooms at the Philadelphia Reading Terminal Market the other day and I knew what I was going to use them for. After having a  week of not watching calories, I decided to make this healthy salad.

Mushrooms are low in calories and sodium but provide important nutrients, including selenium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, and vitamin D.  These antioxidants can strengthen a person’s immune system. Adding some olive oil, garlic and parsley, makes this recipe even more nutritious.

I like to eat this mushroom salad right out of the bowl. This isn’t going to last long in my house. But if I had company, I would serve this as an appetizer with pita chips, crackers or toasted bread. It is also a great topping on a salad or grilled fish, steak or chicken.

Actually I would serve it with many things. OK, maybe not a topping for ice cream.

Have a great weekend!

My husband will love you for this recipe. He loves mushrooms. He went foraging for mushrooms last year with no luck. I haven’t visited in a while, but I’m glad I stopped by. Will be back.

Yum, I love the looks of this salad, and I think it would be really good as a topping for some fish I bought. Or maybe for breakfast, as you said!

Looks marvelous. I could imagine with a little bit less vinegar it would make a great pizza topping. I love the Reading Terminal Market!

Yum…great combo of flavors! I adore mushrooms, but only cook with them occasionally since my other half isn’t a big fan of them most ways. This is so flavorful, I’m betting he’d love this!! BTW…come by and enter the giveaway on my blog: three dips/spreads/sauces from Terrapin Ridge Farms.

What a great idea for a springtime salad! This would be so delicious on the side of a beef dish, I bet.
