  • Reviews

  • “My husband and I thought this salad was the best. The lemon-balsamic dressing had the most extraordinary flavor. I left-off the croutons but did sprinkle fresh grated parmesan cheese on top. I highly recommend this to all mushroom lovers. It is a delight. Thanks s’kat.”

  • “Enjoyed the salad and the balsamic sauce did make a wonderful dressing.We will enjoy this salad time and time again.I’ll try the addition of the tomato wedges the next time.Thanks for sharing! “

  • “I’ve been making this now for years. The only thing I do is increase the amount of mushrooms as we all LOVE mushrooms ! I use meaty “Swiss Browns”.I have added some tomato wedges to the dish before and they worked really well, but you need to be careful and warm them, not cook them.”

  • “Very good. As well as putting on top of salad I put on top of steak. The balsamic for us was slightly over powering but that may have been the brand I used. Thanks for sharing.”

  • “This is a very nice, classy salad. Enjoyed the balsamic-lemon flavor of the sauce. I served this with rack of lamb. Perfect for entertaining or when you want to impress someone. That is a lovely picture, by the way. Thank-you.”
