Crunchy Roasted Pecan Shiitake Salad

There is so much goodness going on in this salad that I can not possibly talk about the entire nutritional profile of all the ingredients. What I will focus on, is shiitake mushrooms, pecans and rocket (otherwise known as arugula). Aside from adding delicious flavour, pecans are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Rocket is a fabulous bitter, leafy green that promotes healthy breakdown of foods in the gut and shiitake supports the immune system making it a great addition for anyone who may be prone to frequent colds and flus.
