The Good News Mushrooms are packed with minerals like selenium that have been shown to guard against some cancers. Here they're drizzled with lemon juice in a salad Joe Bastianich calls "soulful but still filling." He adds, "Raw mushrooms are a great conduit for good olive oil."

  1. 16 medium white or cremini mushrooms (1/2 pound), trimmed and very thinly sliced
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. Finely grated zest of 1 small lemon
  6. 1/4 cup thinly sliced mint leaves
  1. Arrange the sliced mushrooms on a platter. Drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Scatter the lemon zest and mint over the mushrooms and serve right away.
