About this recipe

Eggplant pomegranate salad is simple and healthy and the perfect choice for a light and easy dinner. Eggplant is one of my favourite vegetables. I like it roasted, fried, grilled, and even better smoked over the barbecue. The combination of Eggplant with crumbled feta and the pop and freshness of pomegranate seeds is simply delicious.  This eggplant pomegranate salad could easily replace your dinner or you may want to pair it with some oven-roasted chicken chops or barbecued chicken wings
