Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup loosely-packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 chicken thighs (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • 8 ounces haloumi cheese, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 head romaine, chopped
  • 3 Persian cucumbers, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch semi-circles
  • 1 cup jarred roasted red peppers, cut into thin strips (about 7 ounces)

Directions

1. Preheat a grill to medium-high.

2. Whisk together the 1/2 cup oil, vinegar, parsley, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper until combined. Set aside.

3. Toss the chicken with 2 tablespoon of the oil and the lemon juice and sprinkle all over with salt and pepper. Brush both sides of the eggplant slices with the remaining 4 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides.

4. Grill the chicken, skin-side down, until the skin is crisp and lightly charred, about 12 minutes. Flip and grill until cooked through, about 15 more minutes. Meanwhile, grill the eggplant, flipping once, until tender and lightly charred on both sides, about 10 minutes total. Grill the haloumi, turning once, until soft and lightly grilled on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Cut both the eggplant and the cheese into 1/2-inch pieces.

5. Spread the romaine on a large platter. Decoratively arrange mounds of the chicken, eggplant, haloumi, cucumber and peppers. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve.
