Grilled Eggplant Salad

I love eggplant and search for ways to fix it. This can be grilled or you can fry it in evoo if it's as hot as it's been lately. either way is a winner.
I double or triple this for my gang. this will be enough for 4. Get a fire in the grill going then in a small bowl stir 2 cloves of well minced garlic into 1/2 cup of evoo or more if needed. now brush the 2 peeled and sliced the long way eggplants on both sides with the oil/garlic mix.Sprinkle with salt and fresh cracked pepper place on the grill the coals should be at about med. heat. Grill turning once til tender about 3-5 min. Put the eggplants on a serving platter and sprinkle with about 1/4 cup red vinegar and top with fresh chopped mint. Parsley can be used but the mint gives a wonderful flavor. Serve at room temp
enjoy

It looks really simple but it was amazing

Looks beautiful. I have no grill, will try it with a pan. And I'll mix zucchini with eggplants, too, I need to rehabilitate zucchini in my cooking universe. And I don't know if I can find fresh mint, maybe I'll go for dried oregano. I would put oregano and garlic even in my cappuccino...

Thanks for the simple and beautiful eggplant recipe, Kades

When I am lazy to go to the balcony and do the grilling I grill eggplants on the electric stove.
I clean the eggplants, poke them with a knife, wrap every eggplant in a kitchen foil, put them on the stove and grill them on low heat. turn them from time to time, when you press the foil with a fork and the eggplant inside is soft, take it from the heat, leave it to get cold and then open , peel ad cook.

wrap very carefully so the eggplant fluids stay inside and not on the stove, then it is very hard to clean it. :)


oh and i forgot, here in greece many tmes camping gas is used for grilling eggplants. just poke the eggplant with a knife, put it on a fork or skewer, turn on the fire and grill the eggplant. it is delicious.

Thanks Souvlaki.
By "poking with a knife" you mean piercing them? And do you clean eggplants cutting top and bottom, or you leave them whole for cooking them wrapped in the foil?

Thanks again
