Simple Mushroom Salad

Hubby LOVES mushrooms. I often add mushrooms to mixed salads, but we also eat a lot of cooked mushrooms (who can forget all the grilled Portobello burgers that we have been eating...). Whenever we chop mushrooms, hubby can be found standing in the kitchen, eating them.

Yesterday, I made a very Simple Mushroom Salad:
  • I marinated thinly sliced Baby Portobello mushrooms for about 30 minutes in
  • Olive oil (the really good one from the Farmers' Market)
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & pepper
Before serving the salad, I added some chopped basil. The salad was so delicious.

There was a bit salad left over, and I made a sandwich with the leftover salad with some tomato slices and some cheese. Sorry, no picture! But it was delicious. I think both the salad as well as the salad on a sandwich will be staples in our house from now on.

I'll be back later with my weekly meals. The last few days were a bit "thrown off" as I had some stomach issues on Sunday and a dentist appointment (which I hated and dreaded and feared) yesterday afternoon.

Question: Do you like mushrooms? What's your favorite way of eating them?

Be well,
