Marinated Mushroom Salad
I thought I'd done them all - every single one of my recipes online. I don't have all that many, I thought. Well clearly I do. Because last night when I wanted to make Marinated Mushroom Salad, and I looked online - voila - it wasn't there. And hence today I have a recipe to share.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons white vinegar 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon dried oregano - or fresh is great too Freshly ground black pepper 1 or 1 1/2 punnets mushrooms 1/2 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 8 to 12 pitted kalamata olives, halved (optional) handfuls of chopped herbs - like chives In a large serving bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, mustard, oregano, salt, and pepper. Whisk together. Add mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, and parsley. Stir to combine. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Stir again before serving. Serve cold or at room temperature. Now make a green salad. Add your favourite protein - chicken breasts, or fish fillets, or even some halloumi. There you go. Dinner, sorted.
