Final Notes for the Cold Eggplant Salad Appetizer Recipe
➡️ Eggplant or aubergine is one of the most common and most used vegetables in many countries. It’s cooked in many ways and some of the favorite eggplant recipes include cold appetizers with mayonnaise or yogurt and different aromatic plants. In some parts of the world, such as the Middle East, cold foods including roasted eggplant are known as eggplant dip or eggplant spread and are served as cold appetizers. In India and the Arabic world, the roasted eggplant dip is named baba ganoush.
➡️ In my opinion, roasted eggplant is one of the most refined ingredients to make salad recipes. There are some people who like more backed eggplant instead of roasted eggplant when preparing a salad appetizer or dip. The taste is pretty much the same, excepting the smoked aroma. There are many ways to make an eggplant dip. Some feature more baked or fresh vegetables, others include mayonnaise, especially the Eastern European versions.
➡️ I prefer to make roasted eggplant salad with mayonnaise using homemade mayonnaise. This doesn’t mean I don’t like eggplant dips without mayonnaise such as the Greek eggplant dip or the Lebanese eggplant dip. The spread can also be prepared with mayonnaise from the store if you don’t have much time available to make it at home.
➡️ I recommend you chop the eggplant manually to have some texture, so the eggplant salad will have a more pronounced taste. Of course, you might use the robot if you want to and have less time at your disposal. However, be aware that when you chop it with the kitchen robot, the eggplant will have a pasty consistency.
➡️ As for the eggplant preparation, when I have the chance I like to roast them on the charcoal grill because of the smoked taste that matches very well this vegetable. However, you can roast them on the stovetop, on the stove that has a grill, or simply bake them in the oven. I use all of these techniques at different moments of the year and depending on the place where I am. Needless to say, all will enable you to make a perfect mayonnaise eggplant salad!
➡️ You can serve this eggplant spread as an open sandwich with fresh bread and local cheese or Greek feta (it’s a real treat!). Also, you can use the mayonnaise eggplant salad to make various cold appetizers, such as cold stuffed tomatoes with eggplant salad or cold stuffed peppers with eggplant spread to name but a few of them.
