Cayenne Grilled Eggplant with Fresh Tomato Salad

Share

This Cayenne Grilled Eggplant with Fresh Tomato Salad tastes soooooo good, you will be looking for excuses to make it! Eggplant is one of those vegetables: it’s super versatile. It carries flavors well and it tastes wonderful when it is grilled with smokey char lines. I love to experiment with eggplant and different flavor combinations – and I find that this one really works well!

In this recipe, I combine the grilled eggplant with tomatoes dressed in a mint leaf, chili and lemon juice vinaigrette. I use one of my favorite serving platters to assemble this really delicious and healthy salad. Just before I bring this to the table, I drizzle some yoghurt on top and sprinkle with fresh mint leaves. If I want to make this vegan, I simply omit the yoghurt drizzle – it still tastes absolutely amazing!
