How to make it

  • Cut the eggplant in less than one inch dice, place in a colander. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Cover with a heavy plate and a heavy can on top to press the excess liquid from the eggplant, at least one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with heavy duty foil. Oil with one tablespoon of olive oil.
  • While the oven heats and the eggplant drains, dice all the veggies in less than one inch dice. Not minced but less than chunky
  • This takes time and you want all veggies to be fairly uniform.
  • Rinse the eggplant, dry with paper towels.
  • Put all the veggies including the garlic on the prepped baking sheet along with the capers, olives. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the vinegar and sugar and bay leaf in small sauce pan until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and mix vinegar with 1/2 cup of olive oil, whisk and pour over all the veggies. Toss, mixing thoroughly.
  • Bake uncovered for one full hour, turning every 15 minutes.
  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Slice the tomatoes in fairly thick slices, arrange on a platter, top with the room temperature caponata. Sprinkle with parsley.
  • **Our infamous HR was forever called "Sliced", we never called him his real name after we had this dish.**
