Dear SOS: I am a new fan of the portabello mushroom after having the portabello mushroom sandwich at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa in Ojai. Can you persuade the Inn to share the recipe?
Dear Aliza: What a good idea for a special lunch or late supper. You can grill the vegetables and prepare the spread ahead of time, leaving only the assembly for the last minute. Also, keep the spread in mind as a dip for raw or steamed vegetables.
