  • “For this recipe I choose to use a combination of baby spinach and the mature type. For the mushrooms we combined both oyster and shitake.It was indeed an eye-catching salad, and dressed with Bergy’s Lemon-Yogurt Vinaigrette (reviewed separately) it tastes even better than it looks.Thanks Bergy for a great addition to a summer’s meal.(prepared for “COOKOUT” Cookathon July 1st – July 4th 2002)”

  • “Nice light salad served with hamburgers. I used brown mushrooms, as I think they have more of a robust flavor and I used the Lemon Yogurt Vinaigrette as suggested. :)”

  • “I’m afraid this really didn’t do it for us. I really thought we’d love it–we love spinach, mushrooms, lemon, garlic–everything in this salad and the recommended dressing. I think the lemon juice tossed with the mushrooms is too much. The salad was overwhelmingly lemony–we could barely taste the mushrooms, the spinach, or even the garlic. I’m not sure if I’ll try it again, but if I do, I’ll definitely skip the lemon juice in the salad, as the dressing is plenty lemony. I think it also needs something besides–maybe a little red onion? “
