Grilled vegetable salad with feta


As my grill is on for the second day, I couldn't resist and made some of my favourite dishes. For this salad I chose eggplant, red pepper, and tomato ( a typical combo in Mediterranean region) and finished the dish with olive oil, lemon juice and garlic sauce with some crumbled feta. The good thing about grilling eggplant is that it doesn't soak oil and it gets soft from its own juice. Plus, a bit of smoky flavour has never made these vegetables worse!!

What we need:

1 eggplant
2 red peppers
2-3 tomatoes
60 gr feta
some parsley
2 cloves of garlic
1 lemon juice
2 tbsp of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

What we have to do:

1. Clean the eggplant and cut into slices. Sprinkle with salt and let it rest for 40 min. Then wash eggplant slices under water again and dry with paper towel. Drizzle some olive oil. Put the pieces on a hot grill. Grill until they are light brown and soft.
2. Clean the red pepper. And place on a grill too. Grill until the skin turns brown and burns a bit. When it's done, let it cool a bit and peel the skin.
3. Grill tomatoes cut in halves.

4. In a bowl mix lemon juice, olive oil, finely chopped garlic, salt and pepper, chopped parsley. Add the grilled vegetables. Mix it and let it drink up the flavour. Then put on a serving dish, add crumbles feta and garnish with some parsley.
