This chilled eggplant salad is made with tender, smoky baked eggplant, green onions, garlic, and lemon juice. It’s delicious on its own or served with warm pita bread.

While eggplant is much preferable cooked, it doesn’t have to be served hot! In this chilled salad, the eggplant is roasted ahead of time to give it that smoky flavor, before cooling, dicing, and tossing with the rest of the ingredients.
