Grilled aubergine salad

Serves 3 1h 15 min
A very simple dish of dressed aubergines. The grilling imparts a wonderful smokiness. The aubergines could be tossed with feta, tomatoes, couscous and mint for a light vegetarian meal. They're also a good cold side to go with grilled meat or fish.


  • 1½ tbsp white or red wine vinegar
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 7 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large aubergines
  • 2-3 tbsp mixed herbs-fresh parsley, basil or chives, chopped
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 1h
Cooking time: 15 min
  • Step 1

    To make the dressing, mix the vinegar with the garlic, pepper and a little salt. Whisk in the olive oil a tablespoon at a time.
  • Step 2

    Slice the aubergine into 1cm thick discs. Sprinkle lightly with salt and leave for 30 minutes-1 hour. Wipe dry. Toss with half the dressing.
  • Step 3

    Grill, close to the heat, until browned on both sides. Toss with enough of the remaining dressing to moisten, then leave to cool. Toss with the chopped herbs and serve.
