Fresh mushrooms and other veggies with a savory dressing on a bed of spring greens.
2 tablespoons chives, fresh, minced
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 cup red pepper, diced
1 cup shallot or onion, thinly sliced
1 pound white
button or crimini mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 cups spring mix (assorted baby salad greens)
Divide spring mix among 4 serving plates; set aside.
Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a single layer
of mushrooms and cook, without stirring, for about 5 minutes or until mushrooms
become red-brown on one side.
Turn the mushrooms and stir in shallot or onion, red pepper and garlic. Cook
for 5 minutes, or until shallot or onions begin to soften.
Remove from heat and transfer to a separate bowl. Stir in vinegar, sugar, salt
and pepper and mix until sugar is dissolved.
Spoon mushroom mixture on top of greens and scatter fresh chives on top.
