  • Wash eggplant and cut into small cubes - 1/2 to 3/4 inch. It's not necessary to peel unless eggplant is old or tough. Salt liberally and let stand 30 minutes.
  • Rinse off salt and pat cubes dry. Heat oil in a heavy skillet until very hot. Add eggplant in a single layer (in batches, if necessary) and leave undisturbed for 2 or 3 minutes to brown, then cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 - 10 minutes depending on size of cubes and age of eggplant.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool in pan. Chop tomatoes and herbs; add to eggplant reserving a few bits of herbs for garnish. Add vinaigrette, mix well and taste for seasoning.
  • Arrange lettuce leaves on salad plates or platter. Fill with eggplant mixture. Crumble feta cheese over eggplant; scatter olives and reserved herbs on and around the salads. Serve at room temperature.
