This roasted mushroom and artichoke salad make for the perfect appetizer and is ready within minutes. Gluten free and vegan too!
While I was home I visited the grocery store a lot. Some people like to go on clothing shopping sprees – not me, too stressful for me – I’m for of a supermarket shopper.
So it’s no surprise I was regularly at Whole Foods.
And as I was waiting for something at the deli counter I happened to glance over at the prepared foods section.
Now I had no intention of ordering anything from there, I was trying to fit in as much cooking in as possible while I was home, but I was just curious what they had over there.
One dish in particular caught my eye. There was a mushroom and artichoke salad with red peppers and some green herbs. Cue the lightbulb going off in my head.
Talk about a dinner appetizer.
