If you love mushrooms, this is a simple, but ultimate gourmet way to elevate their typical delicious taste and aroma. This super easy recipe will make you look like you spent hours in the kitchen or you just graduated from the French Culinary Institute. You can serve it as a non-traditional appetizer or, accompanied with a hearty, crusty bread, as a light summer dinner.
Warm mushroom gourmet salad
1 box organic Chef’s Sampler (I got mine in Whole Foods)
Or 1 pound of different mushroom mixture
6 white mushrooms (heads and firm parts of legs only)
6 shiitake mushrooms (heads only)
½ lb snow peas
½ cup crumbled goat cheese
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh marjoram
salt and fresh ground pepper
1 cup of microgreens for garnish
few drops of aged balsamic vinegar
Spread handful of snow peas on each plate and add a pile of mushrooms. Sprinkle whole dish with crumbled goat cheese, good quality fruity olive oil and a few drops of aged balsamic vinegar. Garnish with micro greens and serve.
Wine pairing suggestion:
It is a well known secret that mushrooms improve flavor of almost all red wines. But to me, the most fantastic wine pairing with warm mushroom salad is Pinot Noir. I opened Acacia Pinot Noir Carneros and it was a marriage made in heaven. Try it!
