We enjoyed this salad recipe very much. I omitted the mushrooms because some folks do not enjoy eating them. I doubled the other ingredients. I used Castelvetrano olives. Delicious! It is definitely a keeper! Thank you for submitting.

LOVE IT! I wish I could give it ten stars! I omitted the olives because I don't like them, but I added cherry tomatoes and goat cheese, used a small Thai pepper instead of the pepperoncini, and threw some croutons on top. But the dressing is awesome! Thanks for the recipe!
