Marinated Mushrooms

“My husband loves marinaded mushrooms, in looking for a recipe I went straight to Mable Hoffman’s Appetizer cookbook, since she is always a trusted source for successful recipes.” – Calla Ferre

“These have a wonderful flavor and would be good sliced on a salad. The marinade would also make a good salad dressing.” – April Ferre
