    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    A Middle-Eastern-influenced Greek salad which is great served with warm pita bread or crusty rolls as a starter or as one of several mezze dishes, or to accompany grilled meats or pilaf. I have adapted this recipe from one I found in 'The Taste of Greece' and I am posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. When I've made this, I just haven't noted how long it takes to grill the eggplant, so the 10 minutes below is a guesstimate. I have not included the chilling time required in the calculations for preparation and cooking times. This is very much a prepare-ahead salad.

      I loved this with the strong vinegary dressing but my kids both pulled massive faces although they did try to eat the eggplant and tomatoes. They are pretty good about eating stronger flavours too so this may not be the most kid-friendly recipe if you have a 3 and 6 year old. Very quick and easy to prepare too.

      Being Greek I had to try this recipe! I grilled the eggplants on a indoor grill, increased the garlic, cumin and olives. If you are an eggplant lover such as myslf then this is a recipe! I have to warn that this salad is not for someone who prefers weaker flavors! this can be served as a small side dish or actually a main meal it is VERY filling, this is a perfect dish for a vegetarian meal. I will look forward to making this again soon, it is just wonderful! thank for posting this great recipe bluemoon!...Kitten:)
