Final Notes for the 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.
➡️ Appetizers are some of the most appreciated food recipes all over the world. There are really many eggplant salad recipes. Most of them include garlic and/or onion because they both fit perfectly with the taste of roasted eggplant.
➡️ One of my preferred roasted eggplant salad recipes is the one shared on this page. I like very much this eggplant dip because the roasted eggplant is combined with roasted bell peppers, which give a sweeter taste and a richer aroma to the spread.
➡️ Another reason why I like this appetizer salad is the fact that it’s very rich in different flavors. There is onion, garlic, chives or spring onion, coriander, or parsley…true heaven of aromas! In addition, it’s very creamy from the mayonnaise, so I make it really often, especially in late summer and during fall when you find plentiful ripe aubergine in the market. However, this eggplant spread can be prepared also with frozen eggplant (roasted and cooled previously), so you can make eggplant appetizers throughout the year.
➡️ Eggplant dip with mayonnaise can be served as an open sandwich or along with other food types such as salami, cheese, and so on. The spread can be also used to make various cold appetizers like cold stuffed tomatoes, cold stuffed peppers, and so on. Whichever way you are eating this eggplant dip, I assure you that it’s very tasty, so I recommend you make it as soon as possible!
