  • 2 medium eggplants, sliced in 1/2 inch thick rounds

  • For the Vinaigrette
  • 5 tbsp. olive oil

How to Make It

Prepare the vinaigrette: Add the ingredients to a small bottle or bowl and shake or whisk together. Allow the vinaigrette to sit for about 1/2 an hour for the flavors to meld. Discard the garlic clove before using.

Heat the grill to medium high. Lightly brush the vegetables with olive oil and grill for about 5 minutes on each side or until tender.

Cut larger pieces into chunks and toss with dressing in a large bowl.

Sprinkle with crumbled Feta cheese and serve immediately.
