  1. Slice the eggplant lengthwise and brush with olive oil on both sides. Season with salt.
  2. Grill for five minutes or more on each side until the slices have turned a nice color and are really soft. Turn a few times. You can also roast the eggplants in the oven using the broiler. Turn halfway.

Tip!

Not into anchovies? Go ahead and make this salad with salami or pepperoni (or a combo) instead!

    So so good! Especially easy to bring for lunch to work. After marinating the eggplant in the dressing, nothing more was needed for flavoring. I put all the ingredients on a bed of lettuce to really make it filling.
