Ukrainians looooove mushrooms. They incorporate mushrooms into numerous everyday recipes, but especially for their Christmas Eve 12-course meatless meal.
Traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve menu will include mushrooms in Mushroom soup, varenyky filling (pierogi), Holubtsi filling (Cabbage Rolls), Vooshka filling (dumplings that accompany Ukrainian Christmas Borscht), mushroom gravy (referred to as, Machka, in some households), mushrooms with cabbage, and of course marinated mushrooms.
In the past post I mentioned a very nutritious Quinoa salad flavored with this Magic Green Sauce.
I am providing a link to its origin, but will also post the ingredients and directions in this post, in case the link stops working at some point, and because I made some minor adjustments to suit my taste.
This Quinoa Salad with Magic Green Sauce became my favorite from the first time my daughter-in-law served it for lunch during one of our visits.
It could easily be a light lunch meal in itself, or as an accompaniment to a main course.
Today I will share a recipe for the salad, since you already have the recipe for the sauce/dressing from my previous post.
