Ingredients
  • 1/4 pound spring mix
  • 1/2 package sprouts
  • 1/4 pound shiitake mushrooms
  • 1/2 package strawberries
  • 1 small package aged goat cheese
  • 1 bottle of your favorite balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 pound pumpkin seeds
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Slice the shiitakes in ¼-inch slices, sprinkle in salt, and toss in the olive oil. Put them in a small pan and bake for 1 hour at 300 degrees. Make sure to flip over every 15 minutes to recoat them in oil (a quick alternative to this step is to sauté them in a pan on medium heat for only 15 minutes). Baking the mushrooms on low turns them into bacon-like morsels. The rest just throws together. Mix the spring mix with the sprouts. Cut about ½ of the package of strawberries into small ½ -inch pieces and add to spring mix. Add the pumpkin seeds and the shitakes after they’ve cooled. Finally, crumble the goat cheese and toss it all together. Add your favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing and top with cracked pepper before serving.
