Warm Mushroom, Sun Dried Tomato and Goat Cheese Salad

Warm Mushroom, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese Salad

This is a really tasty warm mushroom salad. I first had it when my sister was hosting a family dinner. I liked it so much that I got the recipe from her right away. I really like everything in this salad. You cannot go wrong with mushrooms and onions sauteed in butter with sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese. The balsamic vinegar and sun dried tomato oil act like a dressing and coat the rest of the salad with flavour. I like the fact that this salad is served warm and that the goat cheese just starts to melt getting nice and creamy. You can use whatever mushrooms that you want. I enjoy and can almost always find cremini and shiitake mushrooms. The warm mushroom mix also goes well on crostini as an appetizer.

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons butter
1 8 ounce package mushrooms (sliced)
1 5 ounce package shiitake mushrooms (sliced)
1 red onion (sliced)
1 5 ounce jar oil packed sun dried tomatoes (drained and chopped)
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon oil (from sun dried tomatoes)
1 package spring mix salad greens
1 package crumbled goat cheese

Directions:
1. Melt the butter in a pan.
2. Add the mushrooms and onion and saute until the mushrooms are golden brown and slightly caramelized, about 5-10 minutes.
3. Add the sun dried tomatoes, vinegar and oil.
4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
5. Pour the mushroom salad onto the lettuce and top with the goat cheese and serve warm.

This looks really flavorful! Thanks for sharing the great recipe. I bet it would make a great topping to some fettucini as well.

The shock of goat cheese against the dark, moody vegetables...this looks like a wonderful main dish salad. Perfect with some warm bread.

Both the salad and bruschetta look wonderful. I've been running around like crazy and haven't been able to read my favorite blogs. But both you and Peter M have been blogging like crazy - and everything sounds so good. I honestly don't know how the two of you do it - you are very disciplined. As for the rest of the posts, I know I'm going to obsess about onion rings until I have some; yours look so good. Cheesy, spinach and crab dip: what's not to like? Especially when it's served straight from the oven. Great posts.

Kevin - I made this for dinner tonight - had to tell you - it's fabulous. I didn't realize how filling it is - and a total show stopper - I love it. Psychgrad has some posting ready but I'll post about it later this week and link to you.
