This makes for a delicious and easy appetizer. The mushrooms are marinated in a tangy blend of Italian flavors like garlic, basil, oregano, and red wine vinegar. Serve it to your guests cold or at room temperature.


  1. Combine all ingredients, EXCEPT MUSHROOMS AND PARSLEY, in a large zip top plastic bag; seal bag and shake well.
  2. Add the mushrooms to the marinade; seal bag and turn over several times.
  3. Refrigerate NO LONGER than 2 hours.
  4. Drain mushrooms and sprinkle with snipped parsley.

These are remarkably good. Other than using sliced mushrooms, I used all ingredients as written, including a healthy pinch of red pepper flakes. We often have grilled or roasted meats on raw greens, and this as a side adds a whole other dimension of flavors to the plate. Thanks.

A wonderful and clever recipe that we both enjoyed with baguette and a glass of wine last night. I did not add the chili flakes, as my husband is not a chili lover, but I don't think I would in the future anyway, as the citrus and herbs was more than enough on the flavour front! My mushrooms made a lot of water, which made the dish a little wet - however, the flavour was still wonderful. I garnished this with fresh thyme stems. Made for PAC Autumn 2009 - merci encore. FT:-)
