Grilled Eggplant with Honey Mustard Dressing

Eggplant is definitely a summer favorite! I love it because it’s full of antioxidants to help fight free radicals.  Although it is technically a nightshade, not everyone is sensitive to or affected by it in any way. If you’ve been feeling sluggish from the summer heat and ready to try something different for Labor Day grilling, try my gluten free grilled eggplant with honey mustard dressing.  It’s wonderful!
