Eggplant salad

RO: salată de vinete

Updated 2007-07-28: new photo


  • 1 kg of eggplants: not to large, with uniform coloring and texture. You should expect to have about 40% of salad from  the eggplants because a lot it’s lost so usually you want to cook at least 2-3 kg in order to minimize the effort.
  • 1 large onion
  • salt, pepper
  • 100ml, sunflower oil
  • patience


  • use a fork to pierce the eggplants to avoid eggplant explosion
  • grill the eggplants until they are soft and liquid is emerging when checking the crust (10 – 15 mins)

Eggplant salad, cooking

  • leave them to cool down until they can be handled
  • peal the crust. This should be easy if they are cooked and cold enough but requires some patience
  • put the eggplants on a plate and wait 10 minutes to let out all liquid

Eggplant salad, pealing

  • cut the onion in very small pieces
  • mix the eggplants with onions and the sunflower oil until it’s a paste

  • Extra: cooked green peppers (cook them the same as the eggplants and peal the skin afterword)
