Prepare a grill. Lightly oil grill rack. Dice the eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, fennel, and red onion.

(Fennel will take 4 to 5 minutes per side; eggplant, zucchini and onion 2 to 3 minutes per side; and tomatoes and lemon 1 to 2 minutes per side.) As the vegetables are done, transfer them to a large shallow serving dish. Toss gently with the dressing (Mediterranean Dressing).
