Notes

Check out these pro tips.
Tip 1: Before baking the eggplants, you can salt the slices and set them on a paper towel. They will absorb the extra moisture and keep the slices with a firmer texture and richer flavor after baking.
Tip 2: Choose your eggplants with shiny skin and fresh green stems. It must feel heavy when you hold it. Make sure it has a firm texture.
Tip 3: It is better to peel the eggplants for this salad. You do not want to have a bitter taste that mainly comes from the skin.
