Thank You

I knew I picked up two eggplants when shopping this weekend for a reason. Thanks

Could you tell me since I still don't have outside grill if I put these in oven don't you feel I would get same results? I know I do not like to turn on oven at this time of year but really I don't have choice. We keep looking at different outside grills but my family are like turtles, slow.

Sounds very good and healthy too. Don't you just love it when you discover something so great?

Hi ITK,
If I were going to do them in the oven, I'd use the broiler and get them done quickly, then assemble them when they cool down a little. I feel they would taste the same, just not have marks from the grill. This way it won't heat up your kitchen so much. I love this recipe so do my kids. Even the little guys like it.
I hope you get a chance to make this and hope you enjoy it as we do.

Thanks AGAIN

About 10 minutes under broiler? Don't think it should be too long. Do I have to salt it first and get the liquid out? I always salt eggplant when I use in other dishes. Appreciate your time.

I never salt my eggplant, I've never in all my years encountered a bitter one.People salt and let sit to get out bitterness, but like I said, I've never had a bitter one. So if it were me, I'd just peel,slice and brush with evoo, put under broiler maybe 3-4 min on each side or just til they are a golden brown and then build my salad from there.How long under the broiler depends on just how thick you cut them..JUst keep an eye on them and you'll be fine.
