Story Behind this Recipe

I once bought a maitake mushroom salad at a department store. It had lots of vegetables including cabbage, bean sprouts, carrots, Chinese chives, scrambled eggs, some boiled pork and maitake... It was seasoned simply with chicken stock and salt.
I tried to recreate the dish using convenient ingredients and seasoning the way my family likes while keeping the maitake mushrooms.
This is a mildly flavored salad.
