"This is my super easy version of a salad I had at a restaurant in Chicago. I usually only cook for one, but this would be easy to make in a larger batch for more people." — mgoblue1

grated Romano cheese
Greek salad dressing
This recipe is great. I did it slightly different though. It was my main course last night, so I made two mushrooms instead of one. I also added goat cheese to the salad, as the peppery taste of arugula really compliments the cheese well. I used good balsamic vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar. Instead of greek dressing, I just used a simple balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper dressing. Fantastic!
This was delicious and very easy to prepare. I roasted my own peppers and made the Greek dressing (olive oil, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, and fresh oregano and basil). Once it was baked, I chopped the mushroom and tossed everything with the arugula to wilt the greens slightly. I didn't use the cheese, and it didn't seem to be lacking. I think feta would be a great complement, along with some pine nuts.
I made this last night for my boyfriend and I. It was AMAZING! Baby bellas were on sale, so we used those, and instead of wrapping everything up in the oven, I left it open to brown up the mushrooms a bit. We used arugula out of the garden mixed with a bit of spinach from the store. Oh, and I added a bit of feta cheese. What an amazing combination! We will definitely be having this again!
A little more creative than most salads and certainly a lot more sophisticated and elegant. Actually, it was kind of a culinary conversation piece! I made my own Lemon-Dijon Vinaigrette but beyond that I stuck to the recipe just as written. Great Mediterranean feel, the perfect accompaniment to the Spanish Meatballs I served this with.
This is a five star salad~~ I served it for 10 recently. A Hit! Used the arugula and spinach salad mix from Costco, chopped the garlic, onion and red peppers finely and sprinkled them over the gill side of m/r~~ made up my own favorite vinegrete, added feta instead of romano to greens, poured a bit of melted butter onto the gill side of the mushrooms and brushed OO on the outside, Another variation for flavor is to render down 1/2 cup of balsamic and use that in place of the red wine vinegar! Yum! Thanks for this wonderful salad suggestion
I made this recipe as an appetizer. I used baby bella mushrom caps, garnished with the lettuce, and served them on bagel chips. Everyone loved them! It looks impressive, and tastes even better!
This was a great salad. I used arugula from the garden, which made it very fresh. I halved medium-sized button mushrooms as I didn't have portobellas. Upsized the recipe for 4.
I balanced the Romano cheese and arugula with red seedless grapes as a garnish and sprinkled on a few pieces of broken walnuts for a little crunch.
