  • We place the eggplants on a baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with a bit of salt.
  • Then, we grill the eggplant for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until it becomes soft and gets a brown colour.
  • In a bowl we mix the other salad ingredients such as garlic, lemon juice, thyme, spearmint, oregano, tomatos and nuts.
  • As soon as the eggplants are cooked, we place them on the bowl and mix them with the rest of the vegetables, before placing the mix on a platter.
