    Manami's Note:

    This Spanish-themed summertime salad showcases the sweet smokiness of grilled eggplant. Like most grilled vegetables, eggplant can be served at room temperature or warm. If you find several varieties of eggplant - they come in a myriad sizes and colors - this is the time to try them out. I found this in EatingWell Magazine - July/August 2007. It is worth seeking out the two signature Spanish ingredients: mild-flavored, smooth sheep-milk Manchego cheese and smoky paprika. If you can’t find Manchego sub Parmigiano-Reggiano and Hungarian paprika. To prepare the eggplant and vinaigrette; cover & refrigerate separately for up to 1 day. Bring to room temperature before serving. Low cal/low carb/low sodium/low cholesterol.
