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.


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

Step by step


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.


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


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.


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.


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


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.


Then chop them continuously and finely.


Mix them with mayonnaise or oil in the fasting version.


Add finely chopped onion, stir.

Instead of onions, add fresh garlic or garlic powder.


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

Good appetite!
