In summer days, there are easy and simple ways to make some vegetables great taste without going to much effort. My homemade Aubergine salad (Eggplant salad) with cream cheese is perfect example of how to turn a boring vegetable into flavoured food. Also you can eat it like a dip or you can eat it like a side dish with meat or fish, chicken. if you want to add your favourite fresh herbs , you should chose any fresh herbs because any fresh herb goes well! For instance, dill, oregano, basil, coriander, fresh green onion, all possibilities work great and give the salad a try share the recipe with your family and your friends. Enjoy it!
