Marinated Mussel Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/marinated_mussel_salad.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 1991, EatingWell Serves Two

Archaeologists say that humans have been eating mussels for over 20,000 years, but it's unlikely our prehistoric ancestors ever tried them with this tangy lemon-caper marinade. Garlic-Tomato Toasts and a bold Sauvignon Blanc are wonderful with this salad.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place mussels, onion, water and wine in a large saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook just until the mussels open, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain, cool and shell the mussels, discarding any that do not open.
  2. Combine lemon juice, parsley, oil, capers, mustard and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the shelled mussels; marinate for at least 5 minutes.
  3. To serve, divide lettuce between 2 plates and top with the mussel mixture.
