Grilled Eggplant Caprese Salad

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® made with Olive Oil Spread, divided
  • 1 medium eggplant, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1/4 cup very thinly fresh basil leaves

Directions

  1. Microwave 3 tablespoons I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® made with Olive Oil Spread in small microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 30 seconds or until melted. Evenly brush onto both sides of eggplant slices. Grill or broil, turning frequently, until tender; cool.
  2. Meanwhile, bring vinegar, onion and garlic to a boil in 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Cool slightly, then stir in remaining 1 tablespoon Spread. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Alternately layer eggplant, tomatoes and mozzarella on serving platter. Top with basil, then drizzle with balsamic reduction.
  • Time Saving Tip: Make this delicious salad even quicker by substituting 1/4 balsamic vinaigrette dressing for the balsamic reduction.
