Method
In small saucepan, mix oil, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, mustard, onions and gingerroot; set aside. Pile mushrooms in centre of large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Drizzle with teriyaki sauce. Fold edges and ends to seal well. Barbecue on high heat about 5-6 minutes or until steaming. Heat dressing on barbecue or stove top just until boiling. Divide salad greens evenly among 4 large salad plates. Top with warm mushroom slices and drizzle with hot dressing. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Serve immediately.

Tips: Prepare dressing in micro proof bowl or glass (2 cup/500 mL) measuring cup and heat in microwave until boiling. Mushrooms could be cooked in 425º F (220 ºC) oven instead of barbecue.
