Mushroom, Jarlsberg, and Parsley Salad

Serves 6

Mushroom, Jarlsberg, and Parsley SaladThis salad gets a refreshing, "nutty" taste from the combination of mushrooms and cheese. It is a nice change from the typical green salad.


1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1/4 pound Jarlsberg cheese, shredded
1/2 cup minced parsley
1/4 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
6 large red lettuce leaves
Lemon slices, for garnish


Toss the mushrooms, cheese, parsley, lemon juice, and oil together. Season to taste. Serve each portion on a red lettuce leaf and garnish with a twisted lemon slice.

This salad should be dressed no longer than 1/2 hour before serving so that the mushrooms retain their best color and texture.
