Preheat grill to medium-high heat (or preheat oven to 400 F).
If grilling, grill eggplant slices and pepper quarters (without brushing with oil) until lightly charred, but still moderately firm, turning occasionally. Remove from heat into a bowl and cover with plastic (this will continue to soften the vegetables).
If oven-roasting, place eggplant and peppers on a parchment–lined baking tray and roast for 15 minutes, turning once. Remove from tray into a bowl and cover with plastic (this will continue to soften the vegetables.)
Once cooled for about 10 minutes, slice into bite-size pieces and toss with orange juice and zest, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds and olive oil. Season to taste and spoon into serving dish. Sprinkle with parsley and chill until ready to serve.
Salad is best served at room temperature.

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
