Mushroom and Avo Salad

Howdy folks! 😊

If there’s a salad that combines so many of my favourite things – It’s this one! Mushrooms ( a delicious substitute for meat), creamy avocado, salty olives and cheesy Feta all combine for this beauty, serves with crunchy lettuce 😋

It’s a simple recipe, good looking too 😉, that I can’t wait for you to try.

Ingredients

  • 400g mixed mushrooms

  • 1 large Avocado, cubed

  • 1/2 medium red Onion

  • 1 Large Tomato

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Seasoned Salt

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

  • 1 cup pitted Black Olives

  • 200g Feta Cheese, cubed

  • Fresh mint leaves

  • Salad dressing
  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  • Roughly chop the mushrooms to manageable pieces. These shouldn’t be too small as mushrooms tend to wilt down when cooked. 😊
  • Heat up the oil and sauté the mushrooms for about 7-10 minutes, seasoned with the 1/2 Teaspoon seasoned salt and 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper. Set aside to cool once done. 😊
  • Sorry the lighting was off, but these are the pitted olives I used. You can cut them in half or add them whole to the salad. 😊
  • So, in your serving dish, arrange your pre-washed salad greens. Starting with the lettuce, olives, onion and tomato wedges. 😊
  • Then, core and cut the Avocado in half, then quarters and eventually into bite sized pieces/cubes. Add these to the salad. 😊
  • Now add the Feta cheese cubes and the cooked mushroom. Also liberally scatter a few fresh mint leave for that hint of freshness. 😊
  • Next, prepare the dressing by combining the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and Pepper – and drizzle it all over the salad, coating the ingredients as much as possible. You’ll be surprised at just how delicious this dressing makes this salad. 😊
  • Toss the salad, and Voila – Ready! Serve and Enjoy! 😋💕
