Ingredients

12 slices of eggplant (about 1/4-inch thick)

Drizzle of olive oil

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

12 slices of prosciutto ham

12 slices of fresh Mozzarella, about 1/8-inch thick

1 small head of radicchio lettuce

Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup Balsamic Syrup, recipe follows

Balsamic Syrup:

3 cups balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. Season both sides of the eggplant slices with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Grill the eggplant for 2 minutes on each side.
  3. Lay a piece of prosciutto on one piece of grilled eggplant. Lay a slice of cheese on top of the prosciutto. Carefully roll up the eggplant and secure the roll with two toothpicks. Repeat the above process with the remaining grilled eggplant.
  4. Cut the radicchio in quarters. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill for 1 minute on each side. Remove from the grill and cut away the core of the lettuce. Using a sharp knife, shred the radicchio. In a mixing bowl, toss the radicchio with extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  5. Place the eggplant roulades on the grill and cook until the cheese starts to melt. Remove from the grill. Place the radicchio on a large platter. Arrange the roulades on the platter. Drizzle the entire platter with the Balsamic Syrup.
