BBQ eggplant with mint, feta, and lemon vinaigrette

BBQ time is here!  Let’s kick it off with this easy to prepare dish of eggplant and dairy free feta.  Cooking outdoors never tasted so good!

step 1

Arrange eggplant slices in a single layer on a large dish; season both sides with salt.  Set aside, 30min. Rinse, then pat dry with paper towel, to remove juices. Brush both slice sides with oil.

step 2

Heat BBQ grill to medium-high. Place eggplant slices on grill (you may need to work in batches), cook 3min each side, until lightly charred, and tender. Transfer to a serving platter.

step 3

Meanwhile, make vinaigrette. Place rind and 2 Tbsp of the juice in a small bowl. Add oil, vinegar, onion, and mint.  Whisk to combine.

step 4

Spoon vinaigrette over eggplant slices. Sprinkle with feta and mint. Serve.
