simple roasted eggplants salad

one thing that has to belong to any mezze dinner is an eggplants dish. something like a baba ganoush. but not everything needs to be in a puree version – and eggplants are definitely best when roasted. nothing brings out their flavor just like it. so, this salad takes less than half an hour to whip up, it’s something i created as i went. it’s good, try it!
