Ingredients

    • 2 medium sized eggplants, cut into 3/4 inch slices
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
    • 1 1/2 cups red or yellow cherry tomatoes, halved

    • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
    • 4 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled
    • 3 cups arugula
    • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Directions

3. Arrange eggplant on salad plates. Divide feta cheese and mound on each plate on top of eggplant. Divide tomatoes and place on top of feta cheese then top with arugula leaves.

4. In the skillet, under low heat, add the remaining oil and balsamic vinegar and heat through for 30 seconds. Drizzle dressing over each salad.

    Sugar isn't poison. Replacing 1/4 tsp. of sugar (the amount for each serving for this recipe) with Splenda (which is made with sugar) will save 4 calories. It's one thing to be conscientious; it's another to be unduly stringent. - 7/20/08

    I have tried eggplant so many times because others rave but each time, I wish I would have passed on the recipe. I guess I just don't like eggplant no matter how it is prepared. - 10/1/10

  • Can I ask a question here? Not a comment? How do you brush two eggplants with one tablespoon of oil? This is my problem with eggplant, which I love . . . In my experience, one tiny cube of eggplant will absorb that much and leave no trace. I always have to use way more oil than any person can eat. - 12/8/08

  • Substituted zucchini and red pepper for the eggplant and tomato due to food intolerance- this is so good but then again any recipe with feta is good :). - 10/7/08

  • I think I will try to make this. I may change some of the ingredients. Lite feta for sure and either skip the sugar or use splenda. - 7/20/08

  • This sounds great. I will probably leave out the sugar and use light feta and maybe add a touch of garlic to the oil that the eggplant is brushed with. I'll update the recipe when i get it made. - 7/20/08
