Directions:

  1. Sprinkle the eggplant slices with 2 tsp salt and let stand in a colander for 30 minutes.
  2. Mix together the oil, vinegar, and garlic, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat a ridged grill pan over high heat. Brush the zucchini with a little olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Cook the zucchini, turning once, about 3 minutes, until tender. Transfer to a large bowl.
