Sweet Corn Salad:

Yield: 3 cups salad, about 6 servings

Herb Roasted Tomatoes:

Yield: about 1 packed cup
  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to thoroughly coat. Place in a single layer on a wire rack placed on top of a baking sheet and bake until moist-dried, about 2 hours.

Eggplant Caviar:

Yield: 2 cups
  1. In a colander, toss the eggplant slices with about 1 tablespoon of the salt, then cover with a small plate and weight; set aside to drain for 30 minutes. Rinse eggplant slices briefly under cool running water and pat dry. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Brush both sides of the eggplant with some of the oil and grill until tender, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining slices and set aside to cool.
