If you ask me what is my favourite dish to cook, I answer: Eggplant.. Everything with eggplant 🙂 Especially in the summer time, when we do BBQ I prefer to prepare this delicious eggplant salad. This salad can be a nice side dish or a dip but anyways you will love it!
Thanks mom for teaching me this recipe 🙂
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 4 big eggplants ( in Zurich I try to buy eggplants from Turkish markets,in my opinion they taste much better than the others.)
- 2 medium red onions
- 2 tomatoes
- 5 long light green peppers if not 2 big red peppers ( this one is special and doesn’t exist in Migros or Coop, I always buy from here. You can use red peppers that you find in Migros also.)
- 2 garlic clove
- Bunch of parsley
- 2 tablespoons of Olive oil
- Lemon Juice
- Salt & Pepper
Cooking Time: 40 mins ( to grill all the vegetables)
Level: Medium – 4 person
If you have a possibility to grill in BBQ this salad becomes more delicious! But no worries, if you don’t have this opportunity then turn on your grill and start to grill eggplants and peppers until they become smooth. Once this is done, then clean their skin of, and cut them into small pieces. Cut the tomatoes, red onions, garlic and parsley into small cubes, mix them with the peppers and eggplants.
Your salad is almost ready. Mix all the ingredients, taste it, then add olive oil and salt according to your taste. If you want you can add origin or fresh coriander to this salad. The important is that you should serve this salad cold. I prefer to leave it 1h in the fridge to cool.
