Zesty Marinated Mushroom Salad

This easy and zesty mushroom salad is so full of amazing flavors! The tender mushrooms are tossed in a tangy dressing which are accompanied by freshly chopped green onions and crushed garlic, and then marinated to deliciousness! 

I’m sure there are many different variations to this salad, as some perhaps add red bell pepper or parsley instead of the green onions and etc… But the general idea is to toss these in Italian dressing. Yes, that and some fresh ingredients create a mouthful of tastiness! I highly recommend the wishbone Italian dressing to make this salad as some other brands tend to be a little too bland for this salad. I don’t know what Wishbone Italian dressing has in it, but when I use it the mushroom salad comes out very zesty and just the way this salad needs to be. You won’t even have to add any additional seasonings since this particular dressing is loaded with flavor. The mushrooms shrink much in size after boiling, so don’t be intimidated by the amount called for. You may certainly slice the mushrooms instead of leaving them whole or cut the really big ones in half. Just reduce the boiling time by two minutes, if you were to completely slice your mushrooms. Try this easy and delicious salad if you haven’t already! It’s seriously good! Serve with some mashed potatoes to complete one delicious meal!
