I love fresh spinach, and I love mushrooms. And basically everything that has a crunch to it when you bite it. Also, it so happens that my husband isn’t really into either of those two main ingredients, so when I buy them, IT’S ALL FOR ME!
I know, I know. Marriage is all about love and sharing. But I can’t help it, ok? Sometimes a girl just wants a handful of mushrooms all to herself. The heart wants what the heart wants.
The lemony vinaigrette also makes me love this salad biiiig time. Not to mention that it’s full of vitamins and minerals, flavor, and is so damn crunchy and pretty.
Also: POPEYE’S SPINACH AND MARIO’S MUSHROOMS, PEOPLE. You just cannot say no to that combination, and you freaking know it.
Let’s proceed :3
- 1 cup Baby Bella mushrooms
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1/4 cup Iceberg lettuce
- 1/4 cup finely shredded cabbage
- olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
Start by slicing those beauties.
Add just a drizzle of olive oil in a heated pan.
Next, cut the spinach. Make it small so you can mix all the ingredients together later.
Cook your Mario mushrooms until they turn golden and the smell makes you wanna cry tears of joy. Tears of joy are a vital part of good cooking, just try not to get them in your dish, you probably don’t want the extra salt.
Mise en place of our beautiful salad! I forgot to take a picture of the cutting of carrots and radishes. I am sorry, people. I know it would have been a really sexy picture.
Now you just have to mix everything in your favorite bowl of plate, and enjoy the extreme yumminess of it. You’ll have to excuse me now, I have a crispy chicken salad to serve my husband, and this lovely salad for myself. I decorated mine with a couple of cherry tomatoes and some hemp and poppy seeds, just because.
