The flavor in this salad is even more spectacular and unique than the colors and presentation. Because it’s so special, I often serve it without the cheese as a side salad for  Shabbos day lunch or even as an appetizer salad on Friday night, with my 4-minute fish cubes (recipe in the cookbook) on top. This salad is another example of how to make a dairy salad into a macro meal.

  • 8 cups pre-checked arugula

  • 1 (6-ounce) box sliced portobello mushrooms

  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms

  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons Tuscanini Olive Oil

Lemon Dijon Dressing


Prepare the Rainbow Feta Salad


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Set out a baking sheet.


Place sliced portobella mushrooms on prepared baking sheet. Toss with one tablespoon olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Roast, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until mushrooms are crisp. Set aside.


In a frying pan, heat 1/2 tablespoon oil. Add shiitake mushrooms; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Sauté shiitake mushrooms until tender, four to five minutes Set aside.


Using a mandolin, cut radishes into thin rounds.


Place arugula into a large serving bowl. Add radishes, roasted and sautéed mushrooms, and crumbled feta. Top with pomegranate seeds. Toss with dressing, to taste.


For a beautiful presentation, as pictured, place the radishes on a plate, then, in a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except cheese. Dress and toss the salad, place it over the radishes, and top with crumbled cheese.
