Ingredients:

  • 2 large aubergines
  • 1 cup peppadews, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat your braai grill to medium-high heat (around 200-220 degrees Celsius).
  2. Cut the aubergines into 1/2 inch slices and sprinkle with salt. Let them sit for 10 minutes to draw out some of the moisture.
  3. Pat the aubergine slices dry with a paper towel and brush both sides with olive oil.
  4. Grill the aubergine slices for 3-4 minutes on each side, until they are tender and have grill marks.
  5. Remove the aubergine slices from the grill and let them cool.
  6. In a large bowl, combine the sliced peppadews, red onion, cherry tomatoes, olives, and parsley.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  8. Add the grilled aubergine slices to the large bowl and pour the dressing over the salad. Toss gently to combine.
  9. Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese over the top of the salad and give it one final toss.
  10. Serve the grilled aubergine Greek salad with peppadews as a side dish or add some grilled chicken for a complete meal.

Enjoy your delicious and healthy summer salad!
