Cut the eggplant, tomato, and onion into large dice.

  2. Whisk garlic, 1/4 cup chopped parsley, and 1/2 cup olive oil together in a large bowl. Add the cut vegetables to the bowl and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  3. Drizzle cut sides of ciabatta with 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and grill, cut side down, for 1 to 2 minutes. Brush grilled bread with some of the Sherry Vinaigrette and then layer on the mixed vegetables and Manchego. Drizzle with more vinaigrette and top with torn parsley. Place other piece of bread on top, wrap sandwich in foil, and place on grill with 2 foil-wrapped bricks on top. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes.
