Grilled Eggplant & Goat Cheese Salad

Can I say: you HAVE TO MAKE THIS?!
If you like eggplant or even if you think you don’t like eggplant: MAKE. THIS. NOW!

Farmers market is bursting with fresh, tender eggplants, especially japanese eggplant, which are sweet, silky and mild.
So DEE-lish!

This recipe was a genius inspiration by Giada De Laurentiis.

Slice japanese eggplants on the bias, lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
Grill on a medium-hot grill until tender, approximately 8-10 minutes, turning half way through.
Let cool to room temperature then sprinkle fresh goat cheese and toasted pine nuts over the top.
Drizzle with a dressing made with equal parts Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive oil, whisked with freshly chopped Mint and Basil.

This is so good, be sure to make more than you think you’ll eat, cause you’ll eat more than you think you will!
Make this. You WILL thank me, trust me, it’s really THAT good!

(Serve alone for lunch or with a freshly grilled salmon or shrimp. Heck, I’d have this for breakfast!)
