Mushroom and walnut salad

Walnut and Mushroom salad

I love mushrooms. So if a recipe comes along with mushroom, some cream, some crunchy bits, I’ll have to try it. This makes quite a refreshing starter course, and you can make it look fancy without much effort. What more is there to ask for?

Ingredients for the mushroom salad

– 4 cups sliced mushrooms (about 12 oz)
– 1/2 cup walnut pieces (about 10 walnuts)
– 2/3 cup sour cream
– 1/2 cup scallions, minced
– 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 tsp fresh-ground black pepper
– 8-12 lettuce leaves


– In a large bowl, mix the mushrooms, the walnuts, sour cream, scallions, lemon juice, salt and pepper
– you can refrigerate for up to a couple hours, but it will taste better if you mix everything just before serving
– Serve in individual bowl, with a couple lettuce leaves forming a nest for the mushroom mixture
