Mango-Quinoa Salad and Portabella Burgers
It’s been really hot and humid the last couple days…so we lugged the grill back out onto the porch (according to building rules we don’t have one, so SHHH!) and made it a little hotter. Earlier in the day, I’d marinated a couple portabella caps in a mixture of balsamic vinegar, olive oil,cooking sherry, and garlic. I left those in a ziploc bag in the fridge, and later they hit the grill.
They were very yummy, serviced up with some grey poupon and fresh spinach on whole wheat bulkie rolls.
I also made the mango-black bean-quinoa salad from V’con.
This was very good, but I made the quinoa while assembling, and in the future I’d give it a cold rinse or build in time to chill the entire salad. It was definitely one of those things that would be great as a COLD salad, and we had it pretty warm. All in all, a great summer dinner with a couple orange tequila drinks and some leftover ginger cookies for desert.
