This is a delicious grilled eggplant dish that people always come back for more. The Mediterranean seasoning in this recipe is very easy and goes great with couscous, my Mediterranean chicken recipe, and hummus. This is not a dish that is served hot. Can also be served at room temperature, but do not leave unrefrigerated longer than 4 hours.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Dust eggplant liberally with 2 tablespoons salt and place in a colander to sweat out bitter flavor, 30 to 60 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Rinse eggplant slices to remove salt. Pat dry.

  • Combine olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Brush mixture on both sides of every eggplant slice.

  • Cook the eggplant on the preheated grill until soft and moist, about 6 minutes per side. Remove eggplant from the heat and set aside until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Chop into 1-inch cubes.

  • Combine eggplant, red peppers, feta cheese, olives, parsley, vinegar, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Try not to overmix because this mashes up the eggplant. Serve as-is.

Cook's Note:

I typically make my own roasted red peppers and would use 2 medium-size peppers in this recipe instead of the 12-ounce jar.

Didn't change anything except let it sit overnight before serving. It was really nice! Added the eggplant at the very last before chilling for the night, then the cheese the next evening. Will make again! Read More
