The Eggplant and Vegetable Salad of Lebanon

A Quick and Easy Recipe with Zero Cholesterol

This is one of my top favorite salads. It is actually a refreshing and soothing dish that is both a side-dish and a salad.

Diced tomatoes, onions and green pepper merge with the smoothness of the roasted eggplant and Extra-Virgin Olive Oil. We take the overall flavor to the next level with Grape Vinegar, Garlic, and Dijon Mustard. A zesty spark of fresh lemon juice is added and the refreshing sensation is boosted further with dry Mint.  We consume this delicious salad with pita bread like  we do with the Eggplant Baba Ghannouj.

The traditional recipe roasts the Eggplants in the oven. With mine today, we are going for the microwave for a quicker cooking and a tastier result.

This is a salad that you will love for your summer BBQs and with your grilled meals…. or simply to enjoy between meals or in front of your TV at night. It’s super healthy, low fat, and light.
