    My daughter made this for the family--delicious. We didn't use eggplant, but added edamame. We loved the dressing on it. She served it with left over Hoisin Chicken Balls by The Flying Chef with Morroccan Spice Cookies by melbalou. It was a perfect dinner with Moroccan green tea with mint. We also had to use garam masala for the mixed spice.

    Outstanding salad! The veggie combination was delicious and colorful! They were cooked just enough to be a bit tender but still have some crunch. I used garam masala for the spice mix. In addition to the mint, I put a little cilantro in the dressing. I'll make this again for sure. Thanx for posting!

    I loved the combination of warm vegetables, raw spinach just wilted from contact with the other vegetables, the spice and the slightly sweet yogurt dressing. Great salad, Mordreth!


July 2008 update: VERY happy to be back on Zaar after about a two year absence due to having had no internet connection at home, and having been too unwell for a time so that getting re-connected wasn't even a priority! <br> <br>And really looking forward to getting back into the Zaar world and connecting again with the many wonderful people I knew before, and new people, of course!
