Grilled Portobellos with Mozzarella Salad

These colorful mushrooms are so filling, they're almost a meal in themselves. They can also be served with a small garden salad or as a hearty side dish. —Sarah Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire

    I absolutely loved this recipe. The only change I made was using 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar.

    I didn't want to fire up the grill, so I broiled them for 4 minutes, turned them over, added the filling and broiled for another 3 minutes. It melted the cheese and brought out the sweetness of the tomatoes. It was awesome!

    Can't wait to try. Just wanted to say olive oil does come as a cooking spray, if you desire to buy it that way. As does canola, for those who consider it safe.
