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.
