Recipe for Melitzanosalata – Greek Eggplant Salad
Melitzanosalata is the Grecian version of Baba ghanoush, but eggplant salad dishes can be found in multiple cultures across the world including Argentina, Ethiopia, Spain, Turkey, and Armenia.
Eggplant Salad Ingredients:
- 3 to 4 (long type) eggplants
- 1 small grated onion
- 1 to 2 cloves crushed garlic
- 1 large, peeled and chopped tomato
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- Black olives
- Green peppers
Directions on How to Prepare Greek Eggplant Salad:
Wash the eggplants, place in a baking pan and bake in a moderate oven for about one hour or until soft.
Allow skin to turn black so as to give a smoke flavor to the salad. Skin eggplants while still hot and chop into small pieces. Continue chopping while adding slowly the onion, garlic, tomatoes, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
Put in a salad bowl, and garnish with olives and green pepper rings.
Serve with roast meat, and grilled or fried fish.
