Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat grill to high. Brush the Eggplant, Onion slices, and Tomatoes with I/4 cup of the Olive Oil and season each vegetable except Eggplant with Salt & Pepper. **
  • Grill the Eggplant until golden brown and just cooked through.(6 - 8 minutes per side.) Grill the Onions until golden brown and just cooked through. (3 - 4 minutes per side) Grill the Tomatoes until charred and slightly soft. (2 minutes per side)
  • Remove the vegetables from the grill and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Place the vegetables in a medium bowl and add the Olives, Capers, Raisins, and Pine Nuts.
  • Mix together the Garlic, Red Pepper flakes, vinegar, and honey in a small bowl and season with Salt & Pepper. Slowly drizzle in the remaining 1/4 cup Olive Oil and whisk until emulsified.
  • Pour the dressing over the vegetables, add the Parsley, and stir gently to combine. Let the salad sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours before serving.
  • Suggestion: Grill Halibut Filets and Top with Eggplant Salad before serving.
  • ** Salting Eggplant before grilling brings out too much water and retards browning. Grill the Eggplant then season it.

    I made this wonderful salad again this past weekend for a group of 10 people. As such, I doubled the recipe and served it with an assortment of grilled seafood - sea scallops, halbut and shrimp. Wow - they loved it! How would they not? Another high 5, Chef Jim - you recipes are always a favorite with my folks, hon. Thank you for all the raves I get. ;-)

    I'm so glad that you stopped to take a look at the Muhammara... now I've got a whole new cache of recipes to try out!

    I've been looking for something a little bit different to do with the eggplant on the salad. I'm looking forward to doing this soon! Great job, Jim?
