(1 cup=200 ml, 1 tbsp=15 ml)

4 cups Fresh mushrooms, cut into quarters
1 cup Scallions,  (green spring onions finely chopped)
1–2 med. Sized Tomatoes, finely chopped
3 -4 cloves Garlic, minced
4-5 tbsp Sundried tomatoes, chopped
A few (8-10) Basil leaves, torn
3-4 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
Juice of 2 lemons (Indian sized)
A few drops Of tabasco
1-2 tsp Coarsely ground black pepper
Salt to taste
1 cup Red cabbage shredded

Instructions for the Salad

1. Heat water up to a boil.  Add the mushrooms in it and let it blanch for 2 – 3 minutes.  Drain and  keep aside to cool completely.
2. Add all ingredients for the salad except salt and red cabbage.  Mix well.
3. Klin wrap and chill in fridge for 2 – 3 hours (basically you need the flavours to marinate well with the mushroom.  You can taste at this stage, increase or decrease the lime juice, balsamic and tabasco quotient).
4. Once chilled, add salt and mix well.  Serve chilled on a bed of red cabbage.
Note: You can marinate this for upto 10-12 hours also.  Just add fresh greens again before serving. Should be served chilled.
