Grilled Eggplant With Sweet Pepper-Tomato Topping
"Salting eggplant slices is a must," says Kristi Michele Crowe, PhD and our Test Kitchens food chemist. "Salt fools the taste buds into overlooking the slight bitterness of this fruit. When grilling slices, no stand time is necessary." (Eggplant casserole recipes usually call for slices to be placed on paper towels and salted to pull out moisture before baking.) Serve this dish with Italian bread for a meatless entrée or as a side to grilled chicken.
