Roast the Vegetables:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F). Brush a grill rack with vegetable oil. Arrange the zucchini and eggplant slices on the rack. Place the rack in the oven with a baking sheet underneath to catch drips. Roast for 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Arrange the tomatoes and bell peppers on the rack and roast for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and mix with the zucchini and eggplant. Drizzle with the prepared dressing, toss again, and serve.

Helpful Tip:

If you have large eggplants, they may taste bitter. To remedy this, slice the eggplants and generously salt them. Let them sit for 15 minutes, then rinse, gently squeeze out excess moisture, and proceed with the recipe.

Fun Fact:

Enhance your roasted vegetable salad by adding cubed feta or bryndza cheese. Try also serving it with thick slices of halloumi cheese, grilled on both sides.
