Perfect for a luncheon or as a salad course at a formal dinner, or a light meal after picking your own mushrooms! The medley of flavors that result from the combination of sun-dried tomatoes, lemon, balsamic vinegar, basil, and chanterelles, truly raises it to gourmet standards. Serve this at room temperature, it will make the flavors sing!

3 cups fresh Chanterelle mushrooms, quartered
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 cup tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp aged balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, diced fine
1/4 cup Italian parsley, chopped



Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Combine the mushrooms, garlic and olive oil in a mixing bowl. Toss to combine thoroughly.

Spread on a baking sheet and place in the oven until the mixture turns light brown. Watch carefully, as the mixture can quickly overcook.

Remove, toss with the remaining ingredients, and permit to cool.

Serve at room temperature.
