Romanian Eggplant Salad

I didn't even realize that among so many salad recipes on the site, I don't have my favorite eggplant salad recipe. I would eat it anytime and anywhere, I like it so much that not a season goes by in which I don't freeze at least 20 bags of ripe eggplant.

Along the way, I kept working on the recipe, I also learned small things and details from more experienced housewives in order to make my eggplant salad as perfect and better as possible - creamy, fine and with a slight smell of smoke.

Here is the eggplant salad with mayonnaise, if you want to fast it, add a little oil and incorporate it slowly, or use fasting mayonnaise.

Ingredients

Eggplant
2 pieces
choose large eggplants that are elastic when pressed
White onion
1 piece
I also add garlic or dried garlic
Mayonnaise
100 g
homemade or bought

Step by step

1

Take an older pan, or use a special eggplant baking sheet (I found it in the market).

Heat it well and bake the eggplants, periodically turning them over.

2

Hold them well until they soften (if the knife enters like butter, they are ready).

3

Allow to cool slightly and then clean them under running cold water.

Many say that they lose a little of their flavor, but I noticed that they are very good and so - instead they clean quickly and nicely, there are no small charred pieces left. Then drain them in a sieve.

4

Once drained, you can freeze them in bags, or pass them on as a salad.

In winter, when you thaw them, they keep their aroma and texture perfectly, I definitely recommend that you make reservations.

5

I noticed that it is tastier with homemade mayonnaise, I recommend not to be lazy and do it quickly :)

6

You can finely chop the eggplants with a blender.

But, after many recommendations and when I feel like chopping them with some wood, or here with a Tupperware silicone spatula.

First, choose the splints (as you chop the eggplant, they will stand out) and throw them away.

7

Then chop them continuously and finely.

8

Mix them with mayonnaise or oil in the fasting version.

9

Add finely chopped onion, stir.

Instead of onions, add fresh garlic or garlic powder.

10

And ready, serve it on fresh bread and enjoy :)

Good appetite!
