Roasted-Portobello Salad with Blue Cheese

Source: Everyday Food Fresh Flavor Fast, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 4 portobello mushrooms (about 1 1/2 pounds total), stems removed
  • 3 medium heads Belgian endive
  • 8 ounces mesclun or mixed salad greens, (about 10 cups)
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces blue cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Slowly add olive oil, whisking to emulsify. Set aside 1/2 cup dressing to toss with the greens.

  2. Place mushrooms, stem side up, on a baking sheet. Coat both sides with some of the remaining dressing. Roast mushrooms, brushing with more dressing every 5 minutes, until they are tender, about 15 minutes.

  3. Toss endive, mesclun, onion, and cheese with reserved dressing, and divide among salad bowls. Cut portobellos 1/2 inch thick, and arrange a few slices over each serving.
