Ingredients

  • 5 baby eggplants or 1 large, sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
  • 2 zucchini sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
  • 4 roma tomatoes halved lengthwise
  • 2 red potatoes medium, sliced into 1/8 inch slices - optional
  • 1/4 red onion small, chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or more to taste

Instructions

  • Coat grates of a gas grill or grill pan with oil. Set grill to medium high heat. Coat eggplant slices, tomato halves, zucchini, and potato if using, with oil on both sides, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill the vegetables on one side, tomato with the skin side down, with the cover down (for a gas grill) for about 5 minutes, or until grill marks form. Remove the tomato from the grill.
  • Flip the rest of the vegetables, and cook on the other side for about 5 more minutes or until cooked through.
  • Cool a few minutes and cut into smaller pieces, if desired, or leave large. Combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl with balsamic vinegar and mix gently. Place on a platter to serve. This salad can be chilled for up to 2 hours.

    Do you cook the onion or leave it raw?

      Nancy, Do not grill the onion, but chop it finely.

    Does this really just make 2 servings? It seems like a lot of ingredients for just 2 cups of food!

      Christine, You’re right it does seem like a lot of for two servings. We’ll recalculate the data and make necessary tweaks. This is a Guest Recipe, but we’ll make recalculations as needed. 🙂
