Mushroom Salad with Orange, Yellow Pepper, Cherry Tomatoes, and Garden Cress

mushroom salad

The mushroom salad with orange, yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes, and garden cress is an easy, delicious, and healthy autumn salad to make. It is filled with umami taste, vitamins A, C, K, and potassium, and is therefore filled with good benefits for your body as well as for your tastebuds. This salad contains mushrooms fried in garlic, fried yellow pepper, garden cress, and slices of orange which spices up the salad.

Serve the salad with bread and hummus and you will have a tasty, vegetarian dish.

All ingredients are easy to get in most supermarkets, but since I am making a lot of wild mushroom recipes, I also recommend using for example fried chanterelles or porcini mushrooms in this mushroom salad.

You can eat the mushroom salad as a light dinner with bread and hummus or as a side dish with for example grilled meat and potatoes.
