If you have a passion for eggplant, you will love this recipe. Again, it is super-simple to prepare, but produces such an interesting result. I love the texture of steamed eggplant – it’s velvety, sloppy and drinks up flavours thirstily. Because eggplant is rather robust in its character, I have teamed it with this rather fine and pungent dressing. If desired, this salad can be prepared in advance and assembled just before serving.
