Weekend Kitchen: Mixed Baby Greens with Eggplant


.
I make this salad quite a bit in the summer.  It might look and sound a little strange but it's really good!
.
.
Ingredients:
- Mixed baby greens
- Italian style bread crumbs
- Eggplant (a narrow one is best)
- Red & yellow bell peppers
- Cherry tomatoes
- Goat cheese crumbles
- Olive oil & balsamic vinegar
- 1 egg
1/4 c. milk
.
Whisk egg and milk in bowl.  Slice eggplant.  Coat in egg/milk mixture and then coat with bread crumbs.
.
.
.
Drizzle a tablespoon or two in fry pan and cook eggplant.  A few minutes on each side is all it takes to cook them up.
.
.
While eggplant is cooking prepare greens & toppings.
.
Look at that pretty lettuce!
.
.
.
Drizzle salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
.
.
Top salad with eggplant & enjoy!  The warm eggplant melts the goat cheese and tastes delicious.  Now I'm hungry!

This looks wonderful. The warm eggplant fried up crispy/soft. Goat cheese...I'm inspired. My daily salad has just been "Kicked up a notch!"
Have a great weekend!
