water, peel off charred portions of skin. Cut peppers into eighths,
discarding seeds. Set aside. Press herbs onto goat cheese medallions. Heat

sugar, cayenne and dash of salt. Set aside. Arrange 4 eggplant halves on
each of 8 plates and place 2 strips each of red and green peppers between
eggplant halves. Set 2 cheese medallions beside peppers. Sprinkle sauteed
walnuts over top. To make dressing, combine vinegar, oil and salt and
pepper to taste. Drizzle dressing over salad.
