Tongho

1Ingredients

Salad:
1 lb. Tong Ho Greens (leaves and stalks)
1 package Enoki Mushrooms
1 large (or 2 small) Red Bell Pepper(s)
1 tbsp packed Fresh Mint Leaves (or one tsp mint powder or dried mint, crushed)
Dressing:
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
1 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper (freshly ground is best)
2 cloves Garlic, minced
Directions
 
Chop the greens, mushrooms, and bell pepper into 1-2 inch pieces.  The enoki will look something like cheese.  Tear the mint leaves over the salad, or sprinkle the dry mint over the salad.
Mix the dressing ingredients.  Pour into the salad.  Toss and eat.
Note: This salad does not keep its flavor very well overnight, so I advise eating it all in one evening.  We had leftovers and I tasted them this morning.  Edible, but not preferable.
This recipe is vegan, paleo-friendly, and gluten-free.
