Portobella Fennel Salad


  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 capful Sunwarrior Immune Shield
  • 2 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 1–2 cups fresh fennel, sliced
  • Handful baby spinach
  • ¼ cup vegan parmesan cheese


  1. portobella fennel salad_pic_1Begin making the dressing by mixing balsamic vinegar, garlic, sea salt, black pepper, olive oil, and Sunwarrior Immune Shield in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  2. Gently brush on some of your freshly-made vinaigrette to your portobello mushroom caps, place on a baking sheet, and broil these babies until they’re nice, tender, and meaty. If you’re not into scalding hot pain, let the mushrooms cool for a bit.
  3. With a mandolin slicer, shave your fennel into a bowl, being very careful not to slice your fingers on the blade. Pour some of your reserve dressing over your freshly sliced fennel, and get on in there with your hands, making sure each piece is nicely coated.
  4. Now that your mushrooms are at a temperature that is suitable to work with, using a fork and sharp knife, cut into thin slices. Plate up your favorite greens, throw on your shaved fennel, pour on the remaining dressing, and top with the portobellos. For the finishing touch, add vegan shaved cheese, raw hemp seeds, and a final pinch of salt.

The only thing left to do is take a one-way trip to face-town. After tasting the explosion of flavor, you may want to make this salad for all your loved ones, who in turn may give up meat and move to a commune in Hawaii. That might happen… but if it doesn’t, that’s okay. This recipe is still delicious!
