Cold Eggplant Salad
2 large eggplants
Peel the eggplant and slice into 1/4 inch thick slices. Cut the small slices in half and the larger ones in quarters. Set into a colander and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Let sit in the sink and drain for about 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and set aside to drain dry.
6 cloves garlic, minced or put through a garlic press
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil 1 can chopped tomatoes, (28 ounces) drained
1 small can tomato paste
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
sliced black olives
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients and blend thoroughly. Mix the eggplant into the sauce and place the mixture in a large, shallow glass baking dish.
Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake until well done and the liquid has reduced. Cool and refrigerate.
