    My sister works in a mushroom mine where they are allowed to take home extra pickings after orders are filled. (lucky me !) I'm always on the look-out for new recipes to use her sharings and made this one last night for the first time. Followed it to a T except grilled the portobellos. Outstanding !! Can't wait to make it again !

    Not sure if it was just the particular cajun seasoning I used but the flavor of the mushrooms was EXTREMELY overwhelming. I like spicy and strongly-flavored food but it was a bit too much. I would definitely cut down on the cajun seasoning next time.

    I love this salad - I always forget to put the cajun seasoning on my mushrooms and it's still delicious.

    Tasty and fairly simple. Good meatless option. I let the mushrooms marinate while prepping the other salad stuff. Used garbanzo beans, as that's what I had on hand. Enjoyed the texture they added to the salad. Also just used a few dashes of chili powder in place of the cajun seasoning. Will make again.

    This is pretty good; unusual but very flavorful and easy. I opted to grill the mushrooms. DD wouldn't touch it though, so this is best just for the adults. Served with some crusty ciabatta bread.
