Mushroom and mozzarella salad


I love mozzarella and think it’s the perfect lunch food. For a while I think I made Caprese salad for lunch at least 3 times a week. Which led to a slight overdose of mozzarella, but yesterday I got feeling again and made this mushroom mozzarella salad. Mushrooms and cheese is a great combo and this dish works great as a lunch or a nice little starter.


M & M salad

-for 1 person as a lunch or for 2 persons as a starter


1 mozzarella

1-2 handful mushrooms of any kind, I used oyster mushrooms

3 spring onions, cut int0 5 cm bits, and the green ends finely sliced

1 handful of rocket

A couple of basil leaves

1 nob butter for frying

Olive oil and balsamic vinegar


  1. Start by frying the mushrooms and onion on medium heat in butter, until they are golden. Turn the heat down and sprinkle with balsamic vinegar.
  2. Tear the mozzarella into bite size bits. (Pleeeeaaaase don’t cut it)
  3. Arrange the mushrooms and onions, mozzarella, rocket and the green finely sliced onion on a serving plate or a bowl.Top with basil, drizzle over some olive oil and season with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper. (Don’t tell me you use fine salt and ready ground pepper)
  4. EAT.
