June 18, 2014

Mushroom Salad with Yuzu Dressing

This mushroom salad has a wonderful zesty finish from the classic Japanese citrus fruit, Yuzu.

Serves 4 - Preparation time 20 mins


  • 200g assorted Japanese mushrooms - shiitake, enoki, shimeji, eringi
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 200g assorted crunchy salad leaves
  • 100g firm tofu
  • 40g roasted walnuts, roughly crushed
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives

Yuzu Dressing


    1. Pick two or three different kind of mushrooms. Prepare the mushrooms – dust them with damp cloth and cut or tear them into large bite sizes.
    2. Put all the ingredients for the yuzu dressing in a large bowl and whisk it well until all the ingredients mixed thoroughly.
    3. Quickly heat the large frying pan with oil. And then add grated garlic and all the mushrooms and sauté them over high heat for about 2-3 min, shaking the pan from time to time.
    4. As soon as the mushroom is cooked, transfer them into the bowl of dressing. Toss them well.
    5. Line a serving dish with the lettuce. Transfer the mushroom mixture on top of the lettuce. Crumble the firm tofu over the lettuce and sprinkle walnuts and chopped chive over the mushrooms.
