sauteed mushroom salad

11 Apr

This salad is part rich and meaty, part light and fresh.  The mushrooms can be prepared a day ahead and warmed slightly in a pan before serving.

If you can find sunflower sprouts they’re perfect for this since they can stand up to the warm mushroom topping without wilting.  Pea sprouts or baby arugula would work just fine as well.

Goes well with french onion soup grilled cheese.
