  • Thickly slice mushrooms and place in a large mixing bowl. Seed and coarsely chop tomato. Slice sugar snap peas into 1/2 inch pieces. Add tomato and peas to bowl and sprinkle with basil.

  • Whisk lemon juice with olive oil, salt, black pepper and cayenne. Pour over vegetables and mix until evenly coated. Use right away or cover and refrigerate. (Refrigerate for no more than 3 to 4 hours since vegetables soften as they sit.)
