How to make it

  • Wash the eggplant and prick all over with a fork. Place on the grill (before the meat as it takes longer to cook). To make sure it cooks evenly, turn it occasionally using the stem as a handle. When the skin of the eggplant looks quite burnt, make sure the flesh is soft right through by testing it with a fork.
  • 2 Hold the eggplant under cold running water to cool, then peel the skin, leaving the soft flesh. Slice it into a serving dish and add the tomatoes, bell pepper, garlic and cucumber .
  • 3 Place the onion in a separate dish and rub with a good pinch of salt, then wash and drain. Add to the salad along with the parsley.
  • 4 To make the dressing, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over the salad and serve.

    This sounds really delish! I love all your clever ideas like turning the eggplant with its stem, and rubbing the onion with salt before using in salad. ON-Line cooking a la Turkey classes! Going out to get carrots and eggplants. thank you. 5555555555555555
