6
fresh large portabella mushroom caps
1
large bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1

  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Brush mushrooms, bell pepper and onion with oil; sprinkle with seasoned salt. Place vegetables in grill basket (grill “wok”).
  2. Place grill basket on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 to 12 minutes, shaking basket occasionally to turn vegetables, until bell pepper and onion are crisp-tender and mushrooms are just tender.
  3. Cut bread horizontally in half. Mix mayonnaise and pesto; spread over cut sides of bread. Layer lettuce and grilled vegetables on bottom half of bread. Add top of bread. Cut into 6 wedges.

Substitution
When red bell peppers are in season, go ahead and use one. Either red or green bell pepper tastes great. Whole-grain sandwich buns can be used instead of the focaccia.
