This salad is super easy to make as your literally just tossing tender mushrooms & avocados in Italian dressing! Easy and VERY delicious!

My mother happened to toss chopped avocados in Italian dressing one morning and after I tried her combination (and I’am not even an avocado kind of person) I wanted to recreate a salad version! Italian dressing really gives this salad a boost of flavor especially since avocado’s can be a bit bland alone. I highly recommend trying this salad!

Ingredients for avocado & mushroom salad:

  • 16 oz fresh mushrooms
