Roasted Mushrooms and Shaved Celery W/ Creamy Lemon Vinaigrette

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by jenne

A sophisticated salad by Bobby Flay. After having made it myself, here are my suggestions. . .#1 half the dressing, otherwise you will have WAY too much, #2 I left the mushrooms whole which were super pretty and they were still cooked after 20 minutes, #3 make sure you SHAVE the celery, otherwise the larger chunks are kind of weird. Definitely something different for a change though!

So unusual and appetising! Love the basil lemon dressing! I pan fried the mushrooms rather than roasted, just seemed easier. I served this on a bed of rucola, to make good use of the plentiful of the lovely dressing. Quite fabulous!
