1 Italian eggplant, cut into 1-inch thick slices
1 large red onion, cut into rounds
1 avocado, halved, pitted and flesh chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped oregano leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, zested
Parsley sprigs, for garnish
- Brush the eggplant and red onions with canola oil and arrange on the grill. Cook the eggplant until soft and grill the onions until they have a slight char. Remove from the grill to a cutting board and let cool slightly. Once cool, roughly chop and add them to a serving bowl along with the avocado.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, the Dijon, and oregano. Add honey and olive oil, to taste, and blend until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Add the dressing to the eggplant mixture and toss. Garnish with lemon zest and parsley sprigs and serve.
