I made sure my mom got this recipe from our friend Becky Mullin when I tasted it at their New Year's Eve party. At that same party Becky's husband was the first one to guess that I was pregnant with Max. Maybe I was a little too eager with that salad.
I love how the mushrooms and onions marinate in the dressing. Enjoy!
