We made this recipe with four portobello mushrooms. My husband and I had whole mushrooms on buns with half the red pepper salad and greens in the sandwich as directed the first night. The next night, I chopped up the leftover mushrooms and tossed them with the other half of the red pepper/feta combo and fresh greens and served it as a dinner salad. It's delicious both ways! I liked it so much that I made it again on a Sunday, we had the salad version for dinner Sunday night and I took the chopped mushroom/red pepper/feta combo with fresh greens to work the next day and shared them with my coworker. She loved it, too!

Loved it! I wasn't sure if I would like the mushroom as the main part of the meal but the melding of the the various tastes of the vegetables, salad, dressing and cheese was just marvelous! We both loved it!!!
I had to change a few things up but it was still fabulous. Instead of sourdough bread I used ciabatta bread. I also used goat cheese instead of feta and did not need the vinager or oil as my tomatoes and olives already had that. It came out better than I could have imagined. I will be serving it often. My husband and neighbor both raved.
My son and I LOVE this recipe. It is our go-to summer vegetarian recipe. We usually just broil the mushrooms and bread instead of pull out the grill.
Also, we usually end up with leftover toppings because my son doesn't like a lot so I just eat the toppings along on the toasted bread the next day!
delightful burgers with delicious Mediterranean topping. Burgers are simple to prepare with only olive oil and salt; Topping is a delightful combo of sweet and silky roasted red peppers with savory and salty olives. tomatoes and lettuce refresh the tongue while feta brightens up the whole finish. Great dish, great for picnics, works fabulous in a wrap!
