This warm salad has such wonderful flavors and textures. A simple balsamic dressing lets the crispy mushrooms star in this delicious salad.

The powdered style of Parmesan cheese works the best for this recipe since it doesn’t melt. You want the mushrooms to have a crispy coating, not one with soft stringy cheese.MushroomArugulaSalad2

Combine the mushroom topping and generously sprinkle over each slice, then bake until golden. MushroomArugulaSalad5

    The recipe sounds wonderful, but how many cups of mushrooms would 120 grams be?

    Thanks,

    Karen

      I would plan for 6-8 slices of (small-sized) mushrooms into each persons salad. So estimating getting 3 slices out of each mushroom, I would say buy at least 2 mushrooms per person/serving. Hope that helps!
