Grilled Caponata:

  1. Heat grill to high. Brush eggplant, onion slices, and tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill the eggplant for 6 to 8 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through. Grill the onions for 3 to 4 minutes per side until golden brown and just cooked through. Grill the tomatoes for 2 minutes per side until charred and slightly soft. Remove the vegetables from the grill and cut into 1/2-inch dice.
  2. Place the vegetables in a medium bowl and add the olives, capers, raisins and pine nuts. Mix together the garlic, red pepper flakes, vinegar, and honey in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Slowly whisk in about 1/2 cup olive oil until dressing is emulsified. Pour the dressing over the vegetables, add the parsley and toss, and let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.
