Cut three slices of round Italian eggplant, remove skin, and dredge in a blend of white flour and cornmeal. Fry until golden brown and soft.
Lay first slice on bed of mixed greens. top with thick layer of fresh goat cheese and a tomato slice, similar in diameter and thickness to the first eggplant slice. Repeat with second eggplant slice and top with third.
The tower is then topped with a Catalan relish of green olives, Kalamata olives, caper buds and caper fruit, and cherry tomatoes. Add sautéed red onion on the side. A light balsamic drizzle is applied over the entire plate.
