Catalan Mushroom Salad-Gourmet Magazine December 1972

I used plain, old button mushrooms for this and the results were fantastic. Mr. ETB said it actually tasted like 1972, but I think 1972 tasted like Green Goddess dressing. *shrug*

You Will Need:

3/4 pound mushrooms thinly sliced
1 small tomato, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
2 garlic cloves minced to a paste
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Pepper to taste
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil

Place the mushrooms, tomatoes, and parsley in a large bowl. Chop and smash the garlic with the salt until you have a paste. Transfer to a small bowl. Slowly stir in the vinegar, and add the pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Pour over mushrooms, and toss lightly.

Are the mushrooms in this salad raw?

Yes. They become quite soft in the dressing.
