Well, I don't have any rules.  Sometimes I mix them, sometimes I chop them
up & add them to green salads or pasta salads.  Sometimes I just keep them
in the fridge for a snack.  If I'm trying to be fancy, I go for the color
variety & use red & green peppers, green & yellow squash, and of course
eggplant.  I might slice them in long strips and arrange them together on a
platter.  I offer a dressing, maybe pesto, aioli, or a vinaigrette, on the
side for those who want it.  I like them plain, myself, with steamed rice
or mashed potatoes.
