RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

APPETIZER

PATLICAN SALATASI (Eggplant Salad), Turkish

Ingredients
  • 4 large eggplants (long type)
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 3/8 cup olive oil
  • 2 green peppers
  • salt
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 lemon
  • 10 black olives
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
Preparation Instructions

Put whole eggplants on spit or hold with tongs over gas flame and turn while cooking. Allow the skin to turn black as this gives a smoky flavor to the salad. Peel eggplants while still hot. Place in a bowl with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and lemon juice and mash with potato masher. Add vinegar and beat until smooth. Mold into shape of eggplant and serve on platter decorated with tomatoes, peppers, onions and black olives.
