Char Grilled Aubergine & Tomato Salad
Serves 6


Recipe by Peter Ayub


3 medium sized Aubergine, de-gorged** and washed – cut into 1 cm thick rounds
3/4 cups good quality local extra virgin
5 medium sized tomatoes – cut into wedges
1 small red onion finely sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons sumac
Smoked salt to season
A small bunch of mint roughly chopped
A small bunch of flat leaf parsley roughly chopped


** De-gorge is to rub salt into the flesh of the aubergine and leave it to draw the moisture out – this will take about 20 min. After 20 min rinse the aubergine rounds well. Pat the aubergine dry. By de-gorging it removes the bitter taste from the aubergine


Drizzle the aubergine rounds Olive oil on both sides.
Grill on high heat until charred and softened – set aside
Season tomato wedges with Smoked Salt and brush with Olive Oil all over
Grill on high heat so that your tomato is blistered and charred – remove from heat and set aside
In the meantime combine the ingredients for the dressing – remaining olive oil, sumac, a generous amount of the Smoked Salt. Put everything into a small jar with a lid and shake vigorously until everything nicely combined
Cut the aubergine rounds in half
On a platter arrange the aubergine halves, tomato wedges and red onion slices
Scatter over the parsley and mint
Just before serving drizzle over the dressing.
