Easy Russian Eggplant Salad

(mydeliciousmeals.com)
I love eggplant, it has a beautiful color and tastes great when prepared the right way. This eggplant and tomato salad has simple ingredients, but tastes so good. You can have this right out of the fridge with a piece of toast (if not on whole30). If you aren’t a big fan of eggplant recipes, this one should change your mind. As a bonus, it's paleo and Whole30 compliant.

looks delicious - perfect for eggplant lovers of which I'm not but I'd try the same thing with zucchini instead

Love the idea of dipping the eggplant in egg before frying. I have to try that!

Yummy! I've had salads like this but never used eggplant. This one is light and so much better than potato salad. This would be perfect for summer bbqs. Can't wait to try it out!

I've never seen an eggplant salad like this before. This looks DELICIOUS. Most ofter, I see eggplant that is overbreaded before being fried, which can often be heavy and greasy, overpowering the wonderful flavor of he eggplant. I'm definitely going to try this when eggplants are ripe!
