Exotic Mushroom Salad

Marinating the mushrooms for 8 hours gives them a lot more flavor, though as little as 1 hour will do.

Balsamic dressing*
6 cups sliced mushrooms (about 1 pound)
4 medium portobello mushrooms, sliced
Vegetable cooking spray
2 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans or other white beans, drained
8 cups mixed greens
4 teaspoons pine nuts, toasted


1. Combine Balsamic Dressing with mushrooms in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag.
2. Seal, and marinate mushroom mixture in refrigerator 1-8 hours.
3. Remove mushrooms from bag, reserving Balsamic Dressing.
4. Place mushrooms on broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and broil 7 minutes or until browned.
5. Combine mushrooms, reserved marinade, and beans in a bowl; toss gently.
Place 2 cups salad greens on each of 4 plates. Spoon 1 1/2 cups mushroom mixture over each salad, and top each with 1 teaspoon toasted pine nuts.

Makes 4 servings.
