Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the grill to its highest setting. Cut the peppers into quarters, then place them, skin-side up, on a baking sheet. Grill until blackened. Place in a plastic bag, seal, then leave for 5 mins. When cool enough to handle, scrape skins off, discard, then set the peppers aside.
  2. Place the aubergines on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and cinnamon, then season with salt and pepper. Roast until golden and softened – about 25 mins.
  3. Meanwhile, combine all the dressing ingredients and mix well. To serve, place the aubergines, green beans, onion and peppers on a large serving plate. Scatter with the feta and pomegranate seeds. Pour the dressing over, then finish with the parsley.

Great dish, made it without the pomegranate as the shop had sold out. I am sure it will be even better with it.

Stunning dish to set on a table and tastes fabulous - excellent with bbq lamb or pork.

I've made this salad twice and it's really nice! It totally replaces a side dish. Or can even be served as a main. I suspect it will go very well with lamb... I will try with lamb this weekend. Also I made my own pomegranate molasses as I couldn't find it where I live.

I think the pomegranate is vital in this case...

This is a very good recipe, although I think there should be a little less of the feta cheese. I didn't use any of the pomegranate, because I was unable to find it here.
