On a large foil-lined baking sheet place onions, mushrooms, asparagus, and eggplant keeping each separate. Drizzle 1/8 cup olive oil evenly over vegetables and sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper. Gently toss each veggie to coat but still keeping them separate.
Place sheet in 400 degree oven until all vegetables are nicely browned. Open the oven and toss the vegetables with a pair of tongs every 5 minutes or so. Remove from oven and let cool.
In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, seasoned rice wine vinegar, olive oil, and sesame oil and set aside.
Toss together greens and fresh basil.
Dress salad by tossing with half the mixture. Taste and add more dressing as preferred. Season lightly with salt a pepper and toss gently.
Ham and turkey may be marinaded in extra dressing.
Plate into two portions. Sprinkle with feta.
