Healthy Caesar Salad

Ingredients
2
large fresh portobello mushrooms (about 4 ounces each)
2
teaspoons olive oil
1
tablespoon lemon juice
1
tablespoon red wine vinegar
2
teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1
clove garlic, minced
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2
cup fat-free mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing
8
cups torn romaine lettuce
1/2
cup fat-free croutons
1
tablespoons shaved Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp cloth. Remove stems and gills from mushrooms. Brush mushrooms lightly with olive oil. For a charcoal grill, grill mushrooms on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 5 minutes. Turn and grill 5 to 7 minutes more or until tender. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place mushrooms on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed above.)
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Dijon-style mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and pepper. Whisk in mayonnaise.
  3. Slice grilled mushrooms. Toss lettuce with dressing in a very large bowl. Divide among serving plates. Top each with sliced mushrooms, croutons, and cheese.
