Mushrooms with Sherry Vinaigrette

When you first assemble this salad all you taste are the separate components—mushrooms, almonds, and sherry vinegar. But after this salad marinates for an hour or two, all of the disparate flavors meld. We like to serve this as part of a tapas assortment platter.


  • 3 cups fresh white mushrooms, cut into quarters
  • ½ cup mild olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • ½ cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch freshly ground pepper


Toss all ingredients together and let marinate for an hour or two.
