Recipe by Krsi Sue

This was given to me by one of my Russian Language teachers. It is best served cool on rye or pumpernickel toast points. Passive time is chilling time.

Tastes really good, especially when left overnight in fridge to marinate and blend the flavors. Baked the eggplant for about 1&1/2 hrs for it to be sufficiently soft. Thank you for delecious recipe.
