Mediterranean Chicken SaladWe’re crazy in love with our Cascade Mushroom Mix, featured in this Mediterranean chicken salad with just the right embellishments. We put the mushroom mix in the marinade, where the umami flavor magic made the meat meatier. The depth of flavor was unbelievable, so we created two more versions to enjoy!Mediterranean Chicken SaladFor the Mediterranean chicken salad, we paired the mushroom mix with Herbes de Provence, rounding out the salad with kale, broccoli and pine nuts. After you’ve tried this recipe, check out our Asian and Middle Eastern versions for more mushroom marinade goodness!
