5. To make the dressing, whisk the garlic, vinegar, and oil together in a bowl. Stir in the parsley and season with pepper to taste. Drizzle over the salad and onions.
6. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet. Add the cremini and shiitake mushrooms and cook for 2–3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the oyster mushrooms and cook for an additional 2–3 minutes. Divide the hot mushroom mixture among the 4 plates. Scatter over the pine nuts and croutons and serve.
