Eggplant salads

Eggplant is an excellent source of dietary fiber, which can help protect against colon cancer and keeps the digestive system regular. The vitamins in eggplant consist primarily of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), B vitamins, folate and vitamin C.

Eggplant is also rich in minerals, boasting a large quantity of potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous.  Once you realize how beneficial eggplant is to your health, you may want to give more consideration to it becoming a regular part of your diet.


Today I will share with you two very simple salads made with eggplants that you will love! (Because they are very easy, and good!).

Grilled eggplants with balsamic vinegar:

. 3 to 4 medium eggplants

. 6 to 8 cherry tomatoes (you can always use normal tomatoes, that’s the beauty of Mediterranean cuisine, it is so flexible!)

.Flakes of parmesan cheese

.Some chopped parsley

.Balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste

Wash the eggplants, cut them into slices of almost 1 inch of thickness, place them on the grill (I use my electrical grill) over medium heat, until they are soft.

Remove them, and cut the slices in the middle being careful not to remove the skin.

Place them in a plate, add the sliced tomatoes, cheese, and the parsley.

In a small bowl mix some balsamic vinegar, the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour over the eggplants and mix.

There you have it, a delicious eggplant salad!


Green onion and eggplant salad:

.1 big eggplant or 4 medium ones

.3 green onions, chopped

.1 clove of garlic, mashed

.1 big tomatoe, diced

. Lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper

Place the eggplants on a baking sheet in the oven under the grill, until the skin begins to burn, u can poke it with a fork to see if it is soft.

Take it out from the oven, peel it, and smash it with a fork until it is coarsely pureed.

Add to this mixture, the tomatoes, green onion, garlic, and add the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

And voila, a Mediterranean eggplant speciality full of taste and flavor!
