"There are different ways to make eggplant salad, a very common summer salad in my country. This is a version called 'agioritiki' named from mount Athos (Agion Oros). It's refreshing with smoky flavor and can stay refrigerated up to three days. Serve it as a salad or on top of whole-wheat bread slices." — constantina

tomato, seeded and chopped
chopped fresh parsley
extra-virgin olive oil
distilled white vinegar
crumbled feta cheese
salt to taste
This was a fabulous recipe. I used my indoor electric grill and sliced the eggplant before grilling to speed it up. The only other change was to use white wine vinegar. I will make this again and again!
I used everything except the feta. It was a nice, fresh tasting recipe.
We went to the market and bought 4 pounds of eggplant. So I started looking for things to do with them and when I found your recipe I decided to give it a try. It is wonderful! I did make some adjustments for what we had. I added one can of garbanzo beans and left out the feta and tomato. But I did have some trouble cooking the eggplant. So I ended up not cooking it all the way I think. But no matter, it still tastes great.
Quick and so easy. You can wrap the eggplant in foil and roast it in the oven if no grill is available. If you don't like raw onions this is not the dish for you.
The recipe is great.I did not change anything and it was just like we eat in Thassos this summer.
Wonderful Recipe! I doubled the eggplant and tomatoes and it was absolutely excellent!
This was delicious and very easy to make. My grill was not working properly, so the eggplant was only partially cooked in the time I needed it, so I diced it up and use the olive oil and 1 small minced clove of garlic to sauté it until it was fully cooked, removed it from the heat. and mixed in the rest of the ingredients while eggplant was still hot. Chilled for an hour and it was wonderful. I will make this again, for sure.
