Grilled Portabello Mushroom Salad with Gorgonzola Dressing

Serves 4

  • 4 oz. Gorgonzola or other blue cheese, crumbled 
  • 1 cup sour cream 
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar 
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 salt and pepper
  • 4 portabello mushrooms, 3-4 oz. each extra-virgin olive oil 
  • salt and pepper 
  • 2 romaine hearts
  • 1 roasted red pepper, peeled, seeded and cut into 4 pieces

Mash the cheese to a paste. Stir in the sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar and garlic. Season to taste. 

Remove the stem from the mushroom and scrape out the gills with a small spoon. Score the tops in a cross-hatch pattern. Season the mushrooms with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill or broil, 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through.

Cut the romaine hearts in half and place on 4 plates. Drizzle with the dressing. Top with a mushroom and a piece of red pepper.
