Day 115: Moldova and Salata cu ciuperci proaspete cu patrunjel (champignon salad)

Bună seara Raffies,
Today we are going to Moldova and we are making Salata cu ciuperci!
For this recipe, I used a Moldovan recipe – in Moldovan – and I am still baffled by the fact that it resembles Italian so much.
The dish is a nice marinated champignon salad with fresh herbs. In the garden parsley and chives are growing wild, therefore it would be a shame not to use them.
As for the recipe:
400g fresh champignons
3 lemons, juice
1 bunch parsley
1 bunch chives
1 bunch fresh estragon
greens for the salad
Start by thinly slicing your mushrooms and marinating them for an hour in the lemon juice with the chopped herbs.
Now you are ready to make a simple dressing with one table spoon of mustard, salt, pepper, olive oil and vinegar. Pour the dressing on top of the mushrooms and add your greens (I used some lolo rosso salad).
It was incredibly fresh and the champignons were simply amazing.
I think this salad is ideal for warm summer days or as a fancy starter for an elaborate dinner.
