Mediterranean Fig Kebabs on Mixed Greens
In small saucepan, combine figs and marinade ingredients. Cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cut eggplant lengthwise into quarters. Slice one quarter crosswise into thin wedges, about 1/4-inch thick. Cut pepper and onion into 1 1/2-inch squares. Remove figs with slotted spoon, reserving marinade and two figs. For kebabs, alternate eggplant, onion, pepper and figs on skewers. Set aside and prepare dressing.
