Roasted Summer Vegetable Salad

Brush veggies with oil into which garlic and salt has been added. Roast eggplant and tomatoes under broiler. Roast peppers directly on top of stove, then steam in paper bag. Peel skins off tomatoes and peppers, removing seeds from peppers. Chop the cooked (just-tender) veggies in 1/2-inch pieces. Assemble remaining oil mixture with vinegars and basil. Toss with veggies, olives and capers. Marinate overnight.
