This was a good salad. I did perk it up by adding cranberries and sunflower seeds.

The dressing is marvelous! In addition to the mushrooms, I threw in some sliced celery and cucumber for crunch. I removed the tough stems from the watercress and ran my knife through them. Thanks for sharing!!

The only complaint I have with this recipe is the amount of mushrooms called for. I used more than 1/2 lb but found I still needed (wanted) more for four people. Great and different salad to serve on the side of a great meal! Thanks again Dancer^.
