Roasted Mushroom Salad

Roasted Mushroom Salad

USA WEEKEND columnist Jean Carper

Don't expect conventional nutrients from mushrooms, but they have hidden anti-cancer activity and may stimulate immune function, research finds. Add red pepper's vitamin C, olive oil's good fat, and the antioxidants in basil and garlic for a very healthful salad.

Outrageously good. I roasted the red bell peppers as other reviews suggested and used lime juice, because I didn't have lemon. I also used fresh mint. This is the best dish I have ever made.

yummy! i did as directed, except i put the finely chopped red bell pepper to cook in the oven w/ the mushrooms, and i didn't have pine nuts on hand, so i chopped & roasted some cashews. while eating this, i was feeding my baby feta cheese, so as an after thought, i sprinkled it on to my salad. it complemented it very well. i will definitely make this again, as it was so easy!

Oh, wow. This was amazing! What is it about garlic and mushrooms that they go so perfectly together? I used basil, and the flavors blended seamlessly. The only things I did differently were to use baby bellas and keep the pine nuts raw (I prefer the flavor). And it's so easy to prepare! An absolute keeper.
