Warm Mushroom Salad

I originally saw a warm mushroom salad on Chucks Day Off (Chuck Hughes) and it looked soooo good. I’ve made it quite a few times since then and it tastes great every time. And there are so many mushrooms you can use! The usual white and brown, crimini, portobello, but also lobster (bright red), enoki (clusters of thin mushrooms), and so many more. The warm olives and speck (prosciutto or bacon works fine) add a nice salty bite. And so quick and easy to make! Use a combination of fresh and dried (and rehydrated), and with so many varieties available, you’ll have a delectable dish every time.

A warm mushroom salad makes for a great fall side dish. Full of flavor and it’s a great comfort dish!
