Mushrooms and green beans are both perfect as the main ingredient of many dishes. They are great in sauces, cooked, in soups or in salads. You can eat them all year round, because mushrooms are available fresh all the time, and beans, if not fresh, can be easily bought frozen.
This time I served mushrooms and green beans in a salad with eggs and feta cheese. I flavoured the salad with a cream sauce with only a bit of mayonnaise because I try using it as little as possible. Although, I personally love mayonnaise and can eat it straight from the jar, my husband is not a fan of it. But somehow he managed to endure the two spoons I added to the salad 🙂 I warmly recommend you this salad for the upcoming Christmas.
