“A Middle-Eastern-influenced Greek salad which is great served with warm pita bread or crusty rolls as a starter or as one of several mezze dishes, or to accompany grilled meats or pilaf. I have adapted this recipe from one I found in 'The Taste of Greece' and I am posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. When I've made this, I just haven't noted how long it takes to grill the eggplant, so the 10 minutes below is a guesstimate. I have not included the chilling time required in the calculations for preparation and cooking times. This is very much a prepare-ahead salad.”

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill, brush the eggplant slices lightly with some of the oil and cook under a high heat, turning once, until golden. Cut into quarters.
  2. Mix together the remaining oil, vinegar, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and coriander; season to taste with salt and pepper; mix thoroughly; add the warm eggplant quarters, stir well and chill for at least 2 hours.
  3. Transfer the chilled eggplant mixture to a serving dish, and add the cucumber, tomatoes and olives; spoon the yoghurt on top, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
