Here are some tips to set you up for success.
Tuiles are a fancy way of saying baked parmesan chips. If you haven’t had them before they are salty and a bit sweet and add a good crunch to the salad.
Use a large frying pan when cooking. You want plenty of space for the mushrooms. Julia Child always said “don’t crowd the pan.” This is certainly true here. You want the mushrooms to cook evenly so a pan with plenty of surface area is best. I also like to salt the mushrooms a bit to enhance flavor as well as to help them release some of their moisture.
While the mushrooms are cooking, you can assemble the dressing. If you aren’t familiar with truffle oil, it’s a great addition to any kitchen and it makes so many dishes feel fancy. You can read more about it over here.
My go-to way of making any dressing is to place all the ingredients in a mason jar, put a lid on it, and shake it like crazy. This helps to mix the ingredients nicely. Plus you can store the jar directly in the refrigerator, creating fewer dishes to clean up.
After you mix the dressing, you will want to taste it to see if you need any salt or pepper. One great way to do this is to take a piece of spinach and dip it into the dressing. This will give you a better idea of how the salad will taste than by just trying the dressing alone.
When assembling the salad, allow the mushrooms and tuiles to cool a bit before placing them.
