Serves: 10 appetizer sized servings

Ingredients
10 medium-sized Portobello mushroom caps, wiped clean
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
10 fresh basil leaves, washed and blotted dry with paper towels

Finish by drizzling with additional vinaigrette and garnishing with chopped chives, if desired.

1 small shallot, finely chopped
1/4 cup organic apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Vinaigrette Directions
Whisk together the shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil until mixed thoroughly.
