Aubergine and Rocket Salad [5:2 diet recipe}

When shopping at the weekend I noticed some lovely plump and shiny Aubergines that were only 50p each so I couldn't resist buying one, thinking that I might make some ratatouille for a fast day. I then spotted a recipe for an asparagus and courgette salad in this month's Good Food magazine and thought I'd make something similar and 5:2 friendly. 20g of Feta cheese doesn't seem much, and it's not, but crumbled into small pieces & scattered through the salad it just adds an extra flavour, but if you want to save a few calories it could be left out or replaced with some cottage cheese.

Absolutely delicious as a light lunch or add some extra vegetables or some lean chicken or fish for a more substantial dinner.
