Ingredients

2 tablespoons pickled ginger , finely chopped
1 ounce enoki mushrooms , separated
1/4 cup pecans , toasted
1 ounce shiitake mushrooms , stems removed and cut in half
2 tablespoons sake
1 ounce low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh, chopped dill
1/2 cup edamame (fresh soy beans)
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
8 cups mixed greens (mizuna, mache, arugula, Japanese greens, baby oak and spinaches, radicchio), washed and torn

Cooking Instructions

1. Toss the cucumber with the ginger in a large bowl and set aside. In a smaller bowl toss the julienned onion with the lime and set aside to marry. Cut the enokis in 1/2 inch lengths and set aside. Cut the bell pepper into thin 1-inch slices.

2. Toast the pecans in a dry skillet for approximately 2 minutes, tossing occasionally. Then set the pecans aside.

3. Add the oil to the same sauté pan and over a medium-high heat, sauté the shiitakes with a tablespoon of the sake and a splash of the soy sauce. Cook approximately 3 to 4 minutes or until the mushrooms are soft.

4. Blanche the carrots in boiling water for 30 seconds, then place in a bowl with the remaining sake and the dill. Set aside to marry. Return the water to a boil and blanche the edamame for approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and set out on a sheet pan to cool. Shell the edamame and drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

5. Toss the mixed greens in a large bowl with the cucumbers. Add the onions, carrots, enokis, and bell pepper. Place the salad in the center of 4 large, chilled plates and add the pecans, edamame and shiitakes in equal amounts. Serve.
