    How to make it 

  • 1

    Place eggplant on wire rack and sprinkle with salt on both sides. Set rack aside until eggplant begins to “sweat,” about 15 to 20 minutes. Blot eggplant dry with clean paper towels.

  • 2

    Preheat grill to medium-high. Arrange eggplant and bell pepper slices on large baking sheet, and brush both sides of all pieces with olive oil. Season with kosher salt and black pepper. Transfer eggplant and peppers to grill, in batches if necessary, and cook, turning occasionally to promote even browning, until softened and nicely marked, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • 3

    Transfer eggplant to platter and top with pepper strips. Garnish with Feta and marjoram. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
