Stage 5

The beauty of this recipe is that you can eat it just as it is: a fresh salad of crunchy mushrooms.

Or you can leave it to stand for a good hour or so in the fridge covered with plastic film for a tender salad of marinated mushrooms.

Or, for yet another twist: fry up quickly in a pan, without adding any extra fat, for simple sautéed mushrooms.
Remarks
You can use other types of mushroom, but they do need to be fresh and raw.
Keeping
2 days at most in the fridge.
