Grilled Portobello Mushroom Salad

Grilled Portobello Mushroom Salad with Greens, Honey Vinaigrette and Roquefort

Makes 4 Servings

1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup olive oil
4 (3 to 4-inch) Portobello mushrooms, cleaned with stems removed
1/4 cup bacon, chopped (or one ounce cooked bacon bits)
8 cups mixed baby greens
Honey vinaigrette (recipe follows)
1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort or blue cheese
Snipped chives, for garnish

Make marinade: In electric blender, blend honey, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and 1/4 cup oil until smooth; set aside. Brush mushrooms on both sides with 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Place on indoor grill or in preheated nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook about five minutes, turning occasionally, just until tender. Transfer to non-reactive container, gill sides up. Pour marinade over mushrooms; cover and refrigerate two to four hours, basting with marinade occasionally.

If using raw bacon, saute bacon until lightly browned. Remove to paper towels to drain; set aside. Remove mushrooms from marinade, then reheat one to two minutes on indoor or outdoor grill, turning once. In large bowl, toss greens with 1/3 cup (or to taste) honey vinaigrette. Divide greens equally among four individual serving plates. Halve mushrooms. Prop one half on the other on each salad. Divide cheese and cooked bacon bits among the salads. Sprinkle with chives.
