This salad is the perfect antidote to the winter blues, and it pairs beautifully with foods of the season--roasts, stews, and braises. You could use a mandoline to slice the mushrooms, but a sharp knife will do.

Serves 6 (serving size: about 1/2 cup)


+ Add To Shopping List
3 large button mushrooms, about 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter (sometimes called "stuffers")
3 cremini mushrooms, about 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter
1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground white pepper, plus more for garnish
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

1. Gently wash and dry mushrooms. Trim the very bottom ends of mushrooms, leaving stems intact. Cut mushrooms vertically into very thin slices; arrange on a platter so they overlap slightly. Combine parsley, rind, and garlic in a bowl. Combine juice, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Gradually add oil to juice mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk. Drizzle juice mixture evenly over mushrooms; sprinkle with parsley mixture and cheese. Let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving.
