Recipe: King trumpet mushroom salad with arugula and shaved Parmigiano

Total time: 15 minutes

Servings: 6 to 8

Note: King trumpet mushrooms are generally available at Asian markets.

3/4 pound king trumpet



1/2 teaspoon finely minced garlic

Pinch dried red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

10 cups arugula, loosely packed, about 8 ounces

1 ounce Parmigiano- Reggiano

3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

1. Trim the mushrooms of any dried ends if necessary, then slice them lengthwise as thin as you can. Place the mushrooms in a mixing bowl and season with 1 teaspoon salt, the garlic and red pepper flakes.

2. Whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil and add 2 tablespoons of the dressing to the mushrooms. Toss to coat lightly.

3. Place the arugula in a large mixing bowl and add just enough of the remaining dressing to coat lightly. Sprinkle with salt to taste and toss well.

4. Arrange the arugula on a serving platter and mound the mushrooms on top. Use a vegetable peeler to shave long strips of Parmigiano on top of the mushrooms. Sprinkle with pine nuts and serve immediately.
