1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 small zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
2 portabella mushrooms, sliced 1/4 in. thick
1 eggplant (14 oz.), sliced 1/4 in. thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 of a 1-lb. ciabatta loaf, split horizontally
2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
2 cups baby arugula


1. Heat a grill to high (450° to 550°). Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise, garlic, and lemon juice together; set aside.

2. Brush zucchini, mushrooms, and eggplant with oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill, turning once, until softened and grill marks appear, about 3 minutes.

3. Grill bread cut side down just until grill marks start to appear, 2 minutes.

4. Cut each loaf-half into 4 pieces. Spread bottoms with mayo and smear tops with cheese. Make sandwiches with vegetables, tomatoes, and arugula.
