Grilled Marinated Portobello Sandwiches with Avocado
Portobello caps have a wonderfully meaty texture when grilled, making this a wonderful main course alternative if you’re trying to eat meatless occasionally. If you have extra time, let the caps marinate in the vinegar a while before grilling; if you’re pressed for time, you can grill them right away.

Shaved Asparagus and Spinach Salad
