Mazing Mushrooms

This has been one of my recipes for ages. I got it from a magazine, but i've no idea which one. It is very simple to make, and looks very impressive as part of an antipasto platter. Cooking time is refrigeration time. I prefer to use field mushrooms because they have more flavour, but it has a more dramatic visual effect if you use the buttons. They also soak up a lot of flavour from the dressing. Since the dressing is so simple, it relies on good ingredients. Please use fresh everything for optimal results.


If you are using button mushrooms , leave them whole.
Slice field mushrooms fairly thinly.
In a serving bowl , combine all of the ingredients and toss to coat the mushrooms well.
At this point taste the dressing , it may need more lemon , or oil.
It really depends on your personal preference , however it should be slightly tart.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours , tossing occasionally.
