Mushroom Salad in Garlic and Parsley Vinaigrette
From Amy Finley
1 pound white button mushrooms, thinly sliced
Garlic and Parsley Vinaigrette, recipe follows
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place the mushrooms in a medium glass bowl. Add the vinaigrette and toss gently. Allow to sit at least 10 minutes, until the mushrooms are wilted and impregnated with sauce. Check for seasoning and add additional salt and pepper, if necessary.
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot (about 1 small)
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons country Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
5 tablespoons olive oil
Place shallot, garlic, parsley, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper in the bottom of a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine, then whisk in olive oil in a slow, steady stream. Alternately, place all ingredients in a clean 8-ounce jar. Cover and shake vigorously.
