Fresh mozzarella is great at soaking up flavors; in this recipe it’s enlivened by olive oil infused with thyme, marjoram, and lemon. One of the best things about this quick dish is that it works as a light lunch or as an appetizer.

Brush the tomato and eggplant slices with 1 Tbs. of the herb oil. Season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a few grinds of pepper. Marinate the mozzarella in the remaining oil.
Grill the eggplant, flipping once, until nicely browned and tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
To serve, put a tomato slice on four plates. Top each with a slice of eggplant, then a slice of mozzarella. Repeat, ending with a tomato slice. Drizzle with any remaining oil and serve.
Keep it fast and fresh: Serve with an Arugula Salad with Pesto Vinaigrette.
