5. Pickled Italian Mushrooms (aka Marinated Mushrooms)

You could call these pickled, or marinated. Whichever word you use, they are delicious and can be used in so many ways. We like to use them as an appetizer, or make a summer side dish from them by adding big, white Italian kidney beans, called cannellini. The mushrooms could be also be served just as they are as antipasto; chopped on bruschetta; tossed with pasta for a pasta salad; or as a garnish for fried fish or calamari.

You'll want to give these a few days to let the flavors combine, so plan ahead and make them this weekend.  They will be perfect by Tuesday!
