Champignon Salat Mit Ei (German Mushroom & Egg Salad)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

(Translation: Mushroom Salad with Egg.) This is an authentic modern German recipe I acquired while living in Germany. It is very pretty for a dinner party and is light and refreshing tasting. I translated this from a German version I found in "Kochen und Geneissen" magazine. I made my salad with the rocket leaves, which have a nutty, peppery taste.

This was great Heather! The perfect start to our Sunday lunch. It was easy to put together and the dressing was tasty, with a hint of mustard and the onions standing out. I didn't use nearly as many mushrooms as your version calls for though -- I found half that amount was just right.
