Grilled Mushroom and Red Onion Salad

Summer is on its way!

Advertisements

Yay for warm weather! And as soon as the weather turns the slightest bit warm, I begin making Summery salads again. I find them the most healthy type of dish for Spring, Summer and into Autumn. As each year passes, we eat salads further into winter, roasting our ingredients, or incorporating barley, freekeh, quinoa and other filling and satisfying ingredients.

Today’s salad is definitely a Spring dish, a Mushroom Salad. Spring Mushrooms are grilled with some red onion and then dressed. It is gorgeous.

Similar dishes include Mushroom, Spinach and Blue Cheese Salad, Mushroom and Carrot Salad with Mung Bean Sprouts, and Stuffed Mushrooms.

Onion Salad with Sesame Oil

A surprise flavour combination.

My friend Franz gave me this recipe, and it is used a lot with left over half onions from other recipes. The combination of Sesame Oil and salted onions is quite amazing.

This salad is a great use of left over half onions, after cooking another dish. A great accompaniment to any meal, I also love it with steamed rice and an Indian chutney.
