Make this delicious pickled oyster mushroom salad and learn how to pickle oyster mushroom fast and easy!
Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus) have an incredible texture! I almost always use them to mimic the taste and texture of meat. I successfully used them in my vegan steak recipe, vegan pulled pork burgers and even vegan tripe soup! If cooked right and seasoned with the best spices, you can really turn a bland mushroom into a savory treat!
Whenever I find oyster mushrooms on sale, I tend to buy them in larger quantities and then pickle them. They can last for a long time this way and you can use them for vegan tripe soup or oyster mushroom salad, such as this one. I always have a jar of pickled oyster mushrooms in my pantry. 🙂
For this oyster mushroom salad recipe, I used the quick pickling version. They don’t need to be extra sour, so boiling them in water with vinegar and spices, is more than enough.
Hope you’ll like this fresh and fragrant oyster mushroom salad. Even Pisulina loved it! She just wouldn’t stop sniffing it! 🙂
