portabello mushrooms

This is a great salad to take to an outdoor concert in the summer.  It is 
super easy.  The original recipe called for crumbled blue cheese, but if you 
can find a good ff and stronly flavored cheese - like Presidente feta (the 
fatfree version is really pretty good, especially in a situation like this), 
then use it instead.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/4  cup           red wine vinegar
     1/4  cup           balsamic vinegar
     1/4  cup           tomato juice
   2      teaspoons     dijon mustard
   2      teaspoons     stoneground mustard
     1/4  teaspoon      coarsely ground pepper
   4      whole         portobello mushroom (remove stems)
   1      tablespoon    cajun seasoning -- for steak
  16      cups          romaine lettuce (or I use the mesclun mix sometimes)
   1      whole         tomato
     1/2  cup           red onion -- thinly sliced
   1      can           cannellini beans -- rinsed and drained
   4      tablespoons   crumbled ff cheese (originally called for blue 
cheese, but sub a strongly flavored fatfree cheese like Presidente feta)

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top bag.  Add mushrooms to bag; 
seal.  Marinate 10 minutes, turning occasionally.  Remove mushrooms from bag, 
reserving marinade.
Sprinkle mushrooms with Cajun spice.  Heat a large nonstick skillet coated 
with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot.  Add mushrooms; cook 2 
minutes on each side or until very brown.  Cool; cut mushrooms diagonally 
into thin slices. 
Arrange 4 cups salad greens on each of 4 plates.  Top each with mushroom 
slices, 2 tomato wedges, and onion rings.  Sprinkle each with 1/4 c beans and 
1 T crumbled cheese.  Drizzle with reserved marinade.
