1. Slice the eggplant into about ½ inch (or a bit thinner) circles. Arrange the slices on a large cutting board and sprinkle with salt on both sides. Let them rest while preparing the balsamic dressing.
4. After about 2 minutes, check to see if they have developed nice char marks, and then flip them over onto the other side. Once cooked, remove and place on a chopping board to rest. Repeat this step until you run out of eggplant slices.
