Swedish mushroom salad

Posted on

Possibly it would sound oddly but the Swedish mushroom salad is a typical Hungarian starter. We don’t know anything about its origin but in Hungary it has been known and beloved for at least eighty years. On parties, big events it is always one of the most popular starter on the cold buffet table. I have a colleague from Stockholm and once when I mentioned that we adore the Swedish mushroom salad he claimed that he had never heard of it. -And do you know the Swedish Budapest cake?- he asked me in return.-What? I’ve never heard of it!- But it might work as the cake of Napoleon which is for us a Russian cream cake, and the Hungarian French salad called in Belgium and Germany salad Rousse-Russian salad etc… Before you would get totally confused, here is the recipe of an excellent cold starter!

Ingredients: 250 g mushroom, butter and oil mixture for cooking, 1 onion, 1 can of tomato, salt, pepper, bay leaf, a pinch of sugar, 1 tbsp of lemon juice

Chop the onion, mushrooms and cut into very thin slices. Soaté the onion in oil and butter mixture, then add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper, add pinch of sugar, sprinkle with lemon juice. Cook until mushrooms release its juice, then add the tomato sauce. Simmer for a few minutes everything together, then taste it, if it’s necessary add more salt. After to discarding the bay leaves put into fridge and serve well chilled.
