This is a main dish salad comprised of ingredients I needed to use up in the refrigerator. It makes two huge main dish salads. It may be too much for some but could be split to make four smaller portions for a light meal. The combination of marinated mushrooms and banana pepper with the sweet dressing makes for an interesting contrast of flavors. I served the salad with herbed Foccacia that needed to be used.

For a wine I chose a white with a soft forefront and a slightly citrus finish to compliment the acid in the salad. Fenestra's Livermore Valley 2011 Semillon was a good pairing.
