Ethiopia Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006. I'm not a fan of eggplant unless it is breaded and fried. Hope you'll enjoy this recipe.

I was curious to try this for ZWT4. I'm glad I did because I actually like it, which was a bit of a surprise. (It's kind of a weird combination by American standards.) I made half a batch but put in a whole lemon because mine was kind of puny. I may not have put in the whole amount of garlic, but I used a good knife and minced it really fine. All-in-all, a good salad and if my husband doesn't turn out to like it, more for me!

This is the first time I have come across a recipe featuring raw eggplant! The marinade does work but the sugar is needed to counteract any potential bitterness. I think a quick stirfried eggplant would probably go better though. Ditto for the garlic as I got complaints from 6 year old DD.
