Marinated Mushrooms, Tomato & Basil Salad

This simple and refreshing salad will be a hit on these hot summer nights - Start marinating those mushrooms because you'll want this more than once!


  • You can always add some black rice or quinoa to this to turn it into a main meal.


  • 250 grms mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 5 fresh sage leaves
  • A sprig of fresh thyme
  • 1 punnet of Roma tomatoes
  • 1 packet of fresh basil 


  1. Combined mushrooms, olive oil, red wine vinegar, sage and thyme in a glass jar for 4 hrs. Rotate the jar at least 4 times to ensure mushrooms are coated. (Note: the longer you can leave it the better, make the night before if possible).
  2. Halve tomatoes and serve with mushrooms and basil. 
  3. Don’t waste the thyme and sage; pull the leaves off and sprinkle though the salad too. Use the marinade to dress the salad.

Serves 4 as a side
