Marinated Mushrooms

Serves 4 as an appetizer

A reader sent us this recipe that she's been making for over 40 years. We replaced the dried herbs with fresh oregano and parsley and added some garlic and onion to boost the flavor even more. These mushrooms make a great addition to an antipasti platter with cubes of cheese, a pile of olives, slivers of roasted red peppers and paper-thin slices of prosciutto.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 pound fresh cremini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
