Marinated Bell Pepper and Mushroom Salad

I absolutely love this salad. It is something that I grew up eating. It is so simple to make with just a few ingredients marinated in an Italian dressing. The mushrooms soak up the dressing and the pairs very well with the bell pepper and onion combination. It is a great fresh addition to any meal. Read on to learn how to make it. Enjoy! 

What you need:

2 bell peppers sliced
1/2 of a medium onion thinly sliced
7 mushrooms cut into forth's

What you need for the Italian dressing:

1 garlic clove minced
1 tablespoon dill
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice 
2 tablespoons of vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoons of Tuscan seasoning or Italian seasoning 

Start by boiling the mushrooms for about 5-10 minutes. Sliced up the onions thinly and the bell peppers. Combine the mushrooms, onions, dill, and bell peppers in medium size bowl.  Add about a pinch of salt and pepper to the mixture.

Combine the seasoning, olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and the garlic in a small mason jar. Close the mason jar and shake until everything is well combined. Pour the vinegar over the vegetable and give it all a good mix. Cover with plastic wrap and let it stay in the fridge for a couple hours. It also taste great on the next day.
