Looking for a super satisfying salad?! This dish is inspired by one of my favourite go to Italian spots in Toronto called Terroni’s. Meet the Funghi Assoluti – Or Warm Mushroom Arugula Salad. I’ve been craving this dish for a while now so I just decided to create it myself and it is so simple. The mushrooms are so hearty and delicious. The texture feels like you are eating meat but it is completely vegetarian. I also love the peppery arugula and salty Parmesan that gives this salad a great balance. All you need to make it is arugula, oyster mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic.

    I loved this salad at Terroni and no longer live in Toronto. Thank you for posting this recipe. So delicious!
    I added more parmesan and breadcrumbs than you suggested. Also I melted a bit of butter to help them stick to the mushrooms.
    Also, I broiled the mushrooms at the end to crisp them up a bit.

    Will definitely make this again. Thank you!

    • Rachelle Lisa on October 7, 2023 at 6:22 pm

      Yes I am obsessed with this salad as well! Thank you so much for the feedback and I am so happy that you enjoyed it!
