Aubergine, Fennel and Pomegranate Salad

My obsession with pomegranates continues. This is by no means a new, or an original, idea. Ottolenghi in style, with a few quirks added by me - I just love it. The addition of fennel lightens it all and the dressing brings it together. Enjoy.
Aubergine, Fennel and Pomegranate Salad

3 small Aubergines (sliced)
Olive oil 

1 Fennel Bulb (sliced and washed)
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice 
1 Tbsp Olive oil 
100g Feta
Seeds from 1/2 a Pomegranate 
Fresh Mint (washed)
80ml Greek Yoghurt 
80ml Hummus
2 Tbsp Olive oil 
Pinch Salt

Season the aubergine slices generously with salt before shallow frying in batches until browned and softened. 
Place the cooked slices onto a tray lined with paper towel to drain off any excess oil. 
Toss the fennel in the lemon juice and olive oil and season with salt and pepper. 
Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a bowl. 
Layer the aubergine slices, fennel and mint on a serving dish and finish with pomegranate seeds. 
Serve with the dressing.
