Thinly slice the eggplant and brush the slices with half the oil. Place in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until golden.
Place the spinach on a serving platter and top with the eggplant, chickpeas, feta cheese, onion and mint.
Combine the remaining oil with the lemon juice. Pour the dressing over the salad and serve at room temperature.
