Eggplant Salad with Chickpeas and Feta

This salad is amazing!

I picked up a special issue of Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food magazine last week at Borders. If you live near a Borders bookstore I’m sure you know that they are going out of business. Going out of business = sales!  I stopped in quick to check out the sales and found that all magazines were 40% off. Sawwweeet. I stocked up on magazines, from cooking, to crafts, to beauty and even the unmentionable ones for my hubby. That’s right, I’m a good wife.

This recipe was one of many that included roasted eggplant. Check out this issue available to the end of August for others!
