Grilled Eggplant and Tomato Sandwiches with Roquefort Dressing

When grilled to perfection, eggplant peel is slightly crusty--a nice contrast to its tender, moist flesh. Roasted eggplant makes a hearty sandwich when combined with a coarse-textured bread, such as an Italian ciabatta or sourdough.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons (about 3/4 ounce) crumbled Roquefort or other blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Japanese eggplants (about 1 pound)
  • Cooking spray
  • 8 (1-ounce) slices ciabatta or sourdough bread

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups trimmed arugula

Preparation

Prepare grill.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well.

Trim ends from eggplants. Cut each eggplant lengthwise into 3 slices; lightly coat eggplant with cooking spray. Place eggplant on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until browned and tender. Remove from grill; cut slices crosswise in half.
