Bright green basil vinaigrette offers a surprising burst of color and flavor to this late-summer favorite.
- To make vinaigrette, preheat oven to 400°F. Put shallots and garlic in a small nonreactive baking dish. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil and roast for 30-40 minutes, or until soft. Combine roasted shallots and garlic with remaining vinaigrette ingredients in a blender. Purée until smooth and emulsified.
- Preheat grill or broiler. Mix tamari, olive oil, and pepper together in a bowl. Brush eggplant slices with tamari mixture. Grill or broil slices for about 1-2 minutes per side, or until browned and soft.
- Make a pool of basil vinaigrette on each of four luncheon plates. Alternate slices of eggplant, tomato, and mozzarella in a circle on top of the dressing. Garnish each salad with basil sprigs.
