Even if you're not the biggest mushroom fan, chances are you're going to love these marinated mushrooms! This Marinated Mushrooms recipe (also sometimes referred to
as "pickled mushrooms") features small white button mushrooms that are marinated in a tangy mixture of red wine vinegar, oil, garlic and herbs. They're incredibly easy to make, yet are packed with flavor! The marinade is simply poured over the mushrooms and they're refrigerated for 12 hours (with some occasional stirring to make sure the marinade entirely covers all surface areas of the mushrooms). When you're ready to serve them, simply spoon the mushrooms onto a small tray or plate and drizzle a little of the marinade over the top. Place some toothpicks on the side for easy taking, and you're good to go! If you're planning to serve a meal later, this healthy appetizer is a perfect way to entertain your guests, while not spoiling their appetites.

These marinade mushrooms are perfect served by themselves as a healthy appetizer, and are also great served as a side dish or mixed into salads.
