I made this salad for the first time yesterday for my husband (a diabetic) and I and we had it as dinner, instead of an appetizer. Although it didn't make much, it was very filling. We both agree that this will be a regular in our household! I did make a couple of alterations, one of which was a delightful accident. I cooked my eggplant on a grill pan on the stove, but next time I bbq I will definitely try it on the charcoal grill. I could not find sherry vinegar, so I used 3/4 Tablespoon of Red Wine Vinegar and 1/4 Tablespoon of Balsamic vinegar. I accidently used spinach instead of the baby greens, but it was delicious. I used Parmigiano Reggiano cheese instead of the Manchego just because I had it on hand and didn't want to spend the additional $$ on Manchego. My one piece of advice to anyone wanting to make this: DON'T skip using the smoked paprika! It makes all the difference.
