  1. Slice the eggplant lengthwise and brush with olive oil on both sides. Season with salt.

  3. Mix olive oil, lemon juice and freshly minced garlic.
  4. Pour the dressing on a platter and place the eggplant slices on top to soak in the dressing. Turn after about a minute.

  6. Drizzle olive oil and a couple of drops of lemon juice or vinegar over and season with freshly ground black pepper and fresh mint.

Tip!

Not into anchovies? Go ahead and make this salad with salami or pepperoni (or a combo) instead!

    So so good! Especially easy to bring for lunch to work. After marinating the eggplant in the dressing, nothing more was needed for flavoring. I put all the ingredients on a bed of lettuce to really make it filling.
