  8. I definitely need to make this for my dad. He enjoys eating marinated mushrooms and this would be a perfect dish to accompany a springtime meal. Thanks for the little lesson. I wasn’t aware that ceviche wasn’t solely for fish!

  10. I love that every country has an interpretation of this dish. In Provence, we call it escabeche and use tomato paste and white wine with whole coriander seeds. I am looking forward to trying your version!

  18. Hello, I’m having fun viewing Lisa & Holler’s roundup and I think you are the first to prepare a cold mushroom salad. Love the combination of lime and ginger with the other spices. I would have never thought to serve the mushrooms with sweet potatoes! Interesting combination I will have to try, I know my husband would love it!
