Eggplant, Zucchini, and Tomato Tian
Don't push the veggies to the side! Put them center stage, like in our satisfying Eggplant, Zucchini, and Tomato Tian. Fresh summer squash, eggplant, and tomatoes are the stars in this recipe. A crunchy, salty, breadcrumb coating atop layers of eggplant, zucchini, and tomato give the fresh ingredients the ideal complement. An 11 x 7-inch glass or ceramic baking dish works well for this recipe, but if you have a 2-quart tian or gatin dish, all the better.
Although you can successfully prepare this colorful end-of-summer salad on a gas grill, charcoal will imbue the vegetables with extra flavor. You can easily substitute white wine vinegar for the champagne vinegar without compromising the flavor of the dish.
