Servings: 4 Yield: servings Prep 35 mins Marinate 30 mins Grill 14 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 eggplant (about 1 lb), trimmed and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • 2 medium zucchini, trimmed and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • 1 sweet red pepper, cut from core into 4 pieces
  • 1 sweet orange pepper, cut from core into 4 pieces
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon grainy mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 can (19 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated ricotta salata cheese

Make It

1. Place eggplant, zucchini and peppers in a large resealable plastic bag. In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, honey, mustard, 1/2 tsp of the salt and the pepper. While whisking, add oil in a thin stream. Stir garlic into marinade and set aside 1/4 cup. Add remaining marinade to bag with vegetables. Marinate 30 minutes.

2. Thread cherry tomatoes onto 1 or 2 skewers. Oil grill grate and heat grill to medium-high. Grill marinated vegetables for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once. You may need to do this in a few batches, depending on the size of your grill. Grill tomato skewers for 4 minutes, turning once.

3. Transfer eggplant, zucchini and peppers to a cutting board. Transfer tomatoes to a serving bowl with chickpeas. Dice eggplant, zucchini and peppers. Add to bowl with reserved marinade, parsley and remaining 1/8 tsp salt. Top with ricotta salata just before serving.

Tip

  • Freshly chopped garlic packs the most flavor, but you can reduce prep time by swapping in a heaping tbsp of jarred.
