This recipe was actually a consummate accident. I had a fridge full of odds as well as ends, in addition to needed a quick dinner to brand for my mom in addition to I!

It all starts alongside these beauties. Basically yous only sauté the heck out of mushrooms, too don’t add salt until the really stop. I learned this play a joke on years and years agone, when I outset started cooking, inward heart schoolhouse. The salt draws out as well much moisture from the mushrooms in the outset, as well as they don’t become as gilt too crispy. So salvage the table salt for the very stop, afterward they permit get of their natural wet!


I sauté them for a skilful ten-12 minutes, together with endeavor not to move them too much so they get a prissy crispy outside. They’re SO adept! I could just stand up at the stove and devour that whole pan.

The adjacent most delicious element is the dressing! When I originally made this, I had leftover caesar dressing from some other recipe, which was delicious, simply I wanted to switch it upward in addition to I went with a creamy garlic parmesan dressing. It simply sounded GOOD.


And I’one thousand and then glad I did because it’second freaking delicious. Creamy, only withal calorie-free together with citrusy. It uses Greek yogurt instead of mayo which is ever a win. That swap volition forever live ane of my faves!

Another fundamental to this salad, which I’ve talked most many times, is how yous take to massage the kale. Which if yous’ve never done it, basically way y'all drizzle it amongst a piddling olive crude, lemon juice, as well as a pinch of salt, (or dressing or any), as well as rub it betwixt your fingers to pause it down a bit in addition to arrive more soft as well as palatable. I ever make it to my kale salads!


Even if it has some other dressing (like this i does), I beginning with that stride before I add together the “existent” dressing!
