    This was good. Different but not as I expected as there was no strong flavour from the eggplant being raw. I was trying it because it was a pretty raw recipe. I used less avocado as I only had 1 on hand, 2 pretty big organic (Canadian as opposed to Chinese) garlic cloves, regular cooking onion (I found too strong as usual), less freshly squeezed lemon juice as I had just 1 lemon left, light tasting extra virgin olive oil, no dulce flakes sorry, I added some sea salt for flavour instead, no pepper as I didn't have that either (I am in the house without many spices), but I did add some honey (too bad it was not raw & local as usual) it was still nice for the taste which I tried before and after adding and would recommend it but use raw! Plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for January 2013's Casual Veggie Tag (come join us everyone!)

    I love lemon juice, salt, and avocado together; and I love eggplant, so I had to try this. It is really good! The first three I mentioned are wonderful, of course, but then there is the addition of two different crispy, crunchy textures. The eggplant and onions go so nicely in this dish. After chilling the dish, I totally forgot the honey until I got here and saw it mentioned in the other reviews. I thought it was great without. Thanks! Reviewed for the Veg*n Recipe Swap.

    The raw eggplant really works well in this salad. It's a nice blend of textures. I used a beautiful white eggplant that I got at a local Famer's Market. Instead of honey, I just sprinkled a little sugar over it. Thanx for posting this unique and delicious salad!
