Roasted Mushroom Salad with Sherry Dressing


Adding the sherry and garlic directly to the hot baking sheet in Step 4 cooks off the alcohol and mellows the garlic. It also allows you incorporate the tasty browned bits from the pan into the salad. Frisée provides a nice textural contrast to the tender mushrooms.

  • 1 pound mixed mushrooms, such as cremini, shiitake caps, oyster and/or beech, halved or quartered, depending on size

  • 1 small onion, halved and sliced

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 8 cups bitter salad greens, such as frisée, arugula and/or baby dandelion greens

  • 2 tablespoons shaved Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  2. Toss mushrooms, onion, 1 tablespoon oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Spread in an even layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, thyme, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in the large bowl.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
