      I am rating the dressing, not the salad as a whole. Delicious, but I found I needed 1/2 cup of olive oil, instead of the 1/4 it called for when using on a lettuce, pepper, tomato and feta salad. Nice southwestern flair!

      I loved this salad; it's the perfect blend of tart, salty and tangy for me. The soft blandness of the avocado, hard-cooked egg and mushrooms are perfect companions to the slightly acidic tomato, sweet basil and salty cheese. I really liked the tart vinaigrette itself and plan to use it on other salads as well. This was an outstanding recipe; thanks so much!

      Delightful! I enjoyed this well balanced, refreshing salad. The only thing, I sauteed my shitake mushrooms before adding to the salad. They are not to be eaten raw from the research I`ve done. I used herb and pepper goat cheese in place of the feta. It gave a nice creaminess to the salad. The vinaigrette was nice and light. The lime yummy! I cut the black pepper to 1/2 teaspoon and blended it in the blender.
