Eggplant salad

Grilled eggplant and bell peppers are often on the menu during my winter stays in Turkey, where vegetables are typically cooked on a coal grill in the garden in the evening. The aromas wafting around the neighborhood are divine!

    Parsley is NOT listed in the ingredients, but is listed in the instructions. Could you update the recipe to include the necessary amount of parsley, please? Thanks!
