Smoky flavour eggplant salad is a charming, tasty and healthy side dish. This low calorie side dish recipe can be an alternative to the regular salad or chips.This is a Turkish style Eggplant Salad and is traditionally eaten as a cold starter but I also like to serve it as a side dish or a dip. There are many different types of Eggplant but most of them use the same basic ingredients. Enjoy! 🙂
