This warm, comforting, satisfying salad takes just seven ingredients to make and you can have it on the table in about twelve minutes from start to finish. It's a delicious side or starter for any pork, chicken, or fish entrée. When sautéed and flavored with balsamic vinegar, portobello mushrooms take on a hearty, meaty flavor and texture. It's also enhanced by the addition of fresh chopped rosemary, plus a little salt and pepper. We love now nicely the mushrooms complement spinach, but if you're not a fan of spinach, feel free to try this recipe with arugula, romaine, or kale instead.
