Celery and Mushroom Salad with Parmigiano-Reggiano

Yield 5 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
In a simple dish like this, flavor balance is essential. Sample the dressing before coating the vegetables, and adjust the lemon juice to suit your taste. The flavor of the extravirgin olive oil will greatly influence how this dish tastes. Add salt a little at a time until the dressing tastes properly seasoned. Add freshly ground black pepper to the mix, if desired.


  • 4 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 cups thinly sliced celery
  • 2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
