What a gorgeous salad to serve with any meal! I love all the rich colors and textures in this Roasted Eggplant Salad with Goat Cheese….perfect for any season.

The smoky taste of the roasted eggplant combines wonderfully with the acidity of the tomatoes and the creamy and tangy goat cheese. This salad could be enjoyed as a side dish or even as a main course (just double the serving), as it is incredibly filling.

It’s a great way to help you feel full without spending a lot of Weight Watchers Points. This beautiful salad is as nutritious as it is lovely, and definitely a healthy salad recipe I recommend trying.

  1. Just made this recipe. Loved it! I added roasted zucchini and green beans because they were on hand. Yum!!

  2. This has to be the best thing i’ve ever eaten. I just whipped up a batch and ate just around half of it. I also love everything in this salad especially goat cheese. Heavenly! And so easy to make. Thank you!

  3. Just made this to try and use some of the eggplant from the garden. Made it exactly as the recipe stated. I thought it was horrible. There was nothing I liked about it.

      It might be your eggplant. I am an avid gardener and sometimes cucurbits will get sour if the plant is not as healthy as it should be. OR, it might be you don’t like eggplant.

  4. Made this last night without adding the goat cheese put it in the fridge and took to work for lunch and then added the goat cheese. This is delicious! Will definitely be making this more often.
