Found this recipe on the box of Melba toast. It's good on crackers (or Melba toast) or as a salad, surrounded by chopped tomatoes.

I made this for the weekend for a large crowd to eat with Yogi's Tasty Buns along with several other spreads. I love eggplant so I really loved this. I have made something similar in the past, but never with the dijon mustard. This really gave it a nice taste and it is on my diet. The only change I made was i used fried onion instead of fresh. My husband does not always love the flavor of fresh onion in a salad and i didn't want to leave it out so I just chopped and fried it first and then added it. It was great.
