Another winner from you, Bergy! This was incredible--everyone was oohing and aahing over how gourmet this salad is---(I bought oyster and shiitake mushrooms to use in the salad instead of regular ones) and I also gave in and bought a gourmet mix of greens--arugula, rocket, etc and added LOTS of parsley. A very potent little salat. THANK YOU....... — posted Oct 6, 2002, 2 members found this helpful
This was quite a good salad. I cut the recipe in half and used a gourmet mix of greens. Had arugula and spinach and butter lettuce and other leaves. For the mushrooms I bought Portabello because my friend doesn't like button and the only other choice was Portabello. Slim pickings for mushrooms this week at grocery store. I found it just had a tiny tad too strong taste of vinegar and I would of liked a bit more zip so perhaps a bit more mustard next time or the cayenne. But a real delicious salad and dressing. Great for our lunch with a soup. Thanks for your post Bergy.
Lovely - I *might* decrease the EVOO next time for the dressing but a very pretty and refreshing salad! Thanks for a new New Year's Eve staple!
WOW! The dressing for this salad was fabulous! DH and I really loved the spicy flavor that it gave the butter lettuce. I substituted 1/4 tsp dijon mustard because I didn't have dry mustard and I substituted shitake and cremini mushrooms for regular ones. I also added a little of avocado to the top of the salad. So good and refreshing. Thanks!
