Grilled Eggplant and Mozzarella
1 large eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/2 cup olive oil
3 Tbs balsamic or red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
6 oz mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
Sprinkle both sides of the eggplant slices lightly with salt and place between layers of paper towels. Let stand for 1 to 2 hours, rinse, and pat dry. Combine the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Place the eggplant slices on a grill over moderate heat and baste with the oil mixture. Turn and baste frequently until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Top each slice with a slice of cheese and grill an additional 2 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt. Serves 4 to 6.
