Grilled Portobello Mushrooms on Greens

Meaty Portobello mushrooms are marinated in balsamic-thyme vinaigrette, charred on the grill, then sliced while still warm and arranged atop greens. Perfect for a light summer lunch!

1 tablespoon Balsamic or Red-Wine vinegar
2 teaspoons extra-virgin Olive Oil
2 teaspoons reduced-sodium Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon minced fresh Thyme
4 fresh Portobello Mushrooms, stems discarded
4 cups Mesclun or Mixed Salad greens

Spray the grill or broiler rack with olive oil nonstick spray; prepare the grill or preheat broiler.

Combine the vinegar, oil soy sauce, and thyme in a shallow dish.  Add the mushrooms and let stand, turning frequently, about 10 minutes.

Grill or broil the mushrooms, brushing with any remaining marinade, until heated through, 1-2 minutes on each side.  Slice thinly and serve at once over the greens.
