   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          water
    2      tablespoons   freshly squeezed lemon juice
      1/2  teaspoon      salt -- or to taste
      3/4  pound         white mushrooms -- trimmed
                         and thinly sliced
    1      tablespoon    freshly grated onion; generous measure
      1/4  teaspoon      sugar
    4      tablespoons   heavy cream
                         freshly ground white pepper
                         boston lettuce
 
 In a medium saucepan bring the water, lemon juice, and salt to a boil. Add
 the mushrooms, return to a boil, and simmer, covered, for 3 minutes. Drain
 well.
 
 In a medium bowl combine the grated onion, sugar, and cream. Toss with the
 mushrooms. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
 
 Place several leaves of lettuce on each of four salad plates. Spoon some
 mushrooms and cream over the lettuce and serve warm.
 
 Serves 4.
 
 Note: The mushrooms may also be served at room temperature. Spoon them over
 the lettuce just before serving.
 
 
 Notes: Scandinavia’s late-summer mushroom salads inspired me to create this
 winter version, in which a bed of cool lettuce receives a lush blanket of
 warm mushrooms. *Recipes from THE VEGETARIAN HEARTH by Darra Goldstein.
