  1. 1. Slice the eggplant (2 or possibly 3 slices per person). Preheat the oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with parchment (or possibly use a nonstick cookie sheet). Mix the egg white, water and oil and put into a dish large sufficient to hold an eggplant slice. Mix the cornmeal and Wondra with salt, pepper and marjoram in a shaker bag. Dry the eggplant with a paper towel. Dip in egg. Lightly coat with the breading. Place on the baking sheet. Bake in the center of the oven for up to 20 min or possibly till lightly brown, soft centered; crisp crust.
  2. 2. Put the dressing ingredients in a shaker jar; combine. Set aside.
  3. 3. Toss the mesclun with the fresh herbs. Place a portion of the lettuce on each plate for serving. Place a slice of still hot eggplant on the lettuce, off centered; top with a slice of mozzarella, then a slice of tomato - fan the slices. Repeat. Serve the onion, avocado, cucumber, olives and oranges along side (on the lettuce). Sprinkle with chopped garlic. Let people add in their own vinaigrette. Serve with warmed bread.
