Mind Games Salad

Certain foods play tricks on my taste buds and mind.  I take a bite thinking mushroom, but get the chewy taste of meat.  The flavor is that of a salad, but the texture is more like a delicious filet. Wild Oyster Mushrooms are to blame. After a week of Syrian food, I return to Dubai eager to have a “different” salad.  So the ingredients below fit the bill.


  • 1 cup sliced Wild Oyster Mushroom
  • 1/2 cup sliced Red Onion
  • 1 table spoon Fresh Ginger Root
  • 1/4 cup Large yellow raisins
  • 2 table spoons Lime Juice
  • 1 table spoon Unsweetened Butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon Rock Salt

Cooking Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a sauce pan and saute the onions until soft
  • peal and pound the ginger root until fine
  • add the ginger root to the onions and fold for 10 seconds
  • add the mushrooms and saute for 3 minutes
  • add the lime juice
  • let it cool
  • Season with salt to taste
