Delicious and fresh taste. I grilled a few basil leaves in the gills of the portabellas which gave it a little extra kick. Only substitution for next time-fresh mozz.
I used goat cheese instead of mozzarella, but it's the portabellos that really make this salad special. Thumbs up!
Excellent! I couldn't find any roma tomatoes so i chopped some regular ones and they worked fine. I didn't grill anything, but i did saute the mushrooms and it disappeared so quickly. Thanks!
