Roasted Eggplant and Tomato Salad

Roasted Eggplant and Tomato Salad brings flavors from the garden together in a delicious dish.  

Roasted Eggplant and Tomato Salad | ahealthylifeforme.com If you are growing your own garden it is bursting with tomatoes and eggplants right now.  If you’re not, the farmers market will have the best quality tomatoes and eggplants now, either way now is the  time to roast them up serve them with a little olive oil and basil and have a little party in your mouth.  This is a true Italian dish.  My mother-n-law makes something very similar to this dish (she is a true Italian woman) and it is one of my husbands favorites.  This couldn’t be any simpler to pull together, it takes only a few minutes to prep and only 30 minutes to cook with limited number of ingredients.

This would be great to bring over to a friend’s house or to serve at a party.  You could make it ahead of time and let it rest on the counter marinating, or you could make a few days ahead and store in the refrigerator covered.  My hubby likes it cold, but if you would prefer it room temperature just pop it on the counter and allow it to come to room temperature before serving.  Either way is truly delicious.  Add a nice crusty bread and a good wine and you have a wonderfully light and healthy summer salad or meal.  Roasted Eggplant and Tomato Salad | ahealthylifeforme.com

    I love eggplant and tomato so this salad looks and sounds amazing! I just want to grab that plate through the screen 🙂

  3. Hi Amy,

    This was delicious. I actually omitted the parmesan as I didn’t have any and no doubt it would have tasted even better, but it was delicious without it. Good news for me as I am trying to cut down on the cheese. Thank you so much! Healthy, delicious, simple, and quick!

      Thank you so much Toria for letting me know. Yep I have started omitting dairy from my diet and this dish is great without the cheese (my hubby though is a parmesan addict). I hope your New Year is off to a great start!

    I would adore this salad. I am a huge eggplant fan plus you added tomatoes. This is the perfect time of year to make this.

    This looks amazing! Sadly in the north it’s not quite time for eggplants and tomatoes, but my plants are flowering and just a few more weeks! Pinned to try 🙂
