If you are a mushroom fan, this salad is for you – it’s so good.! The combination marinated juicy mushrooms with peppers and onions in a tangy Italian dressing is amazing.

The mushroom salad is so easy to prepare and can be made up to two days in advance allowing the dressing to penetrate into the ingredients. This salad is great for parties and potlucks as it doesn’t have any ingredients that get sorry. Serve the salad with grilled chicken kabobs, the easiest pork chops or even chicken in a skillet.

    These mushrooms make me want to try mushrooms again. (I’ve never been a huge fan, but it’s always been a texture thing, not a flavor thing.)

    Loving that marinade and the peppers and the salad idea! I bet my whole family would ADORE this.

    I love mushrooms too! This salad looks really good! I marinate mushrooms myself, just boil them for couple minutes, drain, pour in italian dressing! Thats it!

    • admin 11/07/2017, 1:56 am Link Reply

      No way? That’s awesome, Olya. Love it. Do you peel the mushrooms on leave skin on? Also, how long with they sit in the fridge like that? I can’t wait to try that… like asap. 🙂

      • Olya 11/08/2017, 5:29 pm Link

        No I don’t peel, just wash them, I know mushrooms shouldn’t be washed but I do ? and they can sit in the fridge for a long time, because Italian dressing has vinegar! Hope you’ll like it!
