Grilled Eggplant Caprese

A twist on a typical Caprese salad, our version makes use of the eggplant slices you grilled on Sunday for easier prep. For the dressing, you can use a simple splash of olive oil and balsamic as the recipe indicates, or use our Macadamia Basil Pesto for a more herbal flavor.
