Light and Easy for Spring: Mushroom & Celery Heart Salad

Spring is here in earnest for most of us now. While some patient soldiers of the Eastern seaboard may still be drying out from their rainy introduction, I can report sunny blue skies, tulips and chirping birds on blooming Dogwood branches.  We’ve awakened.

While cozy soups, casseroles and chilis helped us to hunker down happily this winter, I don’t think I’m alone in craving a little levity. Lucky for us, mushrooms specialize in levity of both texture and calories.

I just recently stumbled upon Greg’s post over at Sippity Sup where he takes us through the ultimate in light and easy recipes-Mushroom & Celery Heart Salad.  Now that the sun is out, I’m tempted to spend more time on the patio than at the stove, so this recipe is perfect.  Affordable, basic ingredients combined in way that excited me so much, it begged to be made immediately. My version isn’t nearly as pretty as Greg’s but I felt like a little proof of enthusiasm never hurt anyone so I’ve included it below. Mushrooms (cremini or button will work beautifully), celery, lemon juice, oilive oil, salt and pepper- that’s all you need. I added a little parsley to mine because I had it on hand and like the color.

There’s also the option to add some grated peccorino or parmesan cheese. With so many light choices on the ingredients list, I felt just fine adding a little bit of cheese to the mix. Everything in moderation…even levity.
