This celery salad with roasted mushrooms is a crisp and plentiful antidote to winter


Thanks to the roasted and hot mushrooms, this salad is consistent and attractive in cold weather. Goat cheese, blue cheese or Parmigiano-Reggiano would be good substitutes for feta cheese.

Prepare in advance: the celery mixture should marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour. The salad can be refrigerated up to 3 days. (The mushrooms are not the same cold or at room temperature, but they are still good.)



2soup spoonsShallot shallot

2soup spoonschampagne or other white wine vinegar

2soup spoonsextra virgin olive oil



1/4teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper

8celery stalks (favorite leafy stems of the heart), sliced ​​very thin diagonally

12ouncesCremini mushrooms, each cut into quarters

2soup spoonsextra virgin olive oil

Step 1

For marinated celery: Beat together the shallot, vinegar, oil, salt, sugar and black pepper in a large bowl until dissolving the sugar. Add celery and white beans, mix and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

2nd step

While the celery is marinated, prepare the roasted mushrooms: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Arrange the mushrooms on a rimmed baking sheet, then drizzle with oil, salt and mix to coat. Roast (center rack) for 30 to 40 minutes, until the mushrooms are golden brown and tender.

Step 3

Reserve 2 tablespoons of mixed herbs to garnish the salad.

Step 4

To assemble just before serving, mix the rest of the herbs with the mixture of celery and white beans. Arrange on a tray. Garnish with roasted mushrooms, crumbled feta cheese and reserved herbs. Serve right away.
