Oven Crispy Eggplant Salad

Appetizer, Lunch, Vegan

This Oven Crispy Eggplant Salad is delicious and fun to make.  The eggplant is baked crispy and added to fresh arugula, roma tomatoes, and plant based feta cheese.  I drizzled a tasty vegan  thousand island dressing on top.

3/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk, or another plant based milk of your choice
