     Grilled Eggplant with Feta and Herbs

Category   Salads - Soups - Sidedishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   4-6 servings

Vinaigrette- 1 Small Clove Garlic and Kosher Salt
1-1/2 Tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice
1 Small Shallot, chopped fine
3 Tablespoons Extra- Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin Seed, Lightly toasted and pounded in a mortar
Pinch of Cayenne
For Eggplant- ! Large Eggplant , trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch thick rounds.
3 Tablespoons Extra- Virgin Olive Oil; more if needed
Kosher Salt
1/4 Cup Crumbled Feta
2 Tablespoons Coarsely Chopped Fresh Mint
2 Tablespoons Coarsely Chopped Fresh Cilantro

Make the vinaigrette- With a mortar and pestle, pound the garlic and a pinch of salt to a paste, or mince the garlic, sprinkle with salt, and mash into a paste with the side of a chef’s knife. Combine the garlic paste and 1 Tbs. of the lemon juice in a small bowl and let sit for 10 minutes. Combine the shallot with the remaining 1/2 Tbs. lemon juice and a pinch of salt in another small bowl and let sit for 10 minutes. Whisk the olive oil, cumin, and cayenne into the garlic mixture. Season to taste with salt or cayenne, if necessary.
Grill the eggplant- Prepare a medium-high charcoal or gas grill fire. Brush both sides of the eggplant slices with olive oil and season with salt. Grill (covered on a gas grill; uncovered on a charcoal grill) until golden-brown grill marks form, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the eggplant and grill until tender and well marked on the second sides, 3 to 4 minutes more. The interior should be grayish and soft rather than white and hard. Top grilled eggplant slices with the shallots, feta, and herbs. Whisk the vinaigrette and drizzle it on top. Serve immediately.
