Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Goat Cheese Salad

Once again I go to "Sensational Salads" by Barbara Scott-Goodman.
Though these mushrooms were to be cooked on a grill,
I chose to use my favorite cast-iron grill pan in the coolness of my kitchen,
as our weather today is 107 degrees in the shade!

Welcome to Texas, y'all!

3/4 c. plus 2 Tbsp. EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
2 cloves GARLIC, thinly sliced
KOSHER SALT and freshly ground BLACK PEPPER
1/2 RED ONION, thinly sliced lengthwise
2 Tbsp. chopped FLAT LEAF PARSLEY
1/2 c. crumbled GOAT CHEESE

Arrange the mushrooms in one layer and pour 3/4 c. of the olive oil over them.
Sprinkle with the garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
Cover loosely and let marinate for about 2 hours.

"Grill" in cast-iron grill pan, covered, over moderately high heat until golden and lightly charred... about 4 minutes per side.

Cut the mushrooms into thick slices and transfer to a large bowl.
Add the onion, vinegar, parsley, the remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste and toss well to combine.
Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.

Arrange salad greens on a platter or individual plates.
Spoon the mushroom salad over them and sprinkle with the goat cheese.
Drizzle with additional olive oil and pepper if desired and serve at once.

I'm sorry you had to turn the heat on for this meal but it looks worth it.
Fantastic shot again Fay.
