Kaponata Salad

I personally prefer it eaten cold but the Middle East left a strong influence on the way I prepare my food and still using the same ingredients, I like to break down the cooked eggplant with a fork to make a paste and add it to all the other cooked kapunata ingredients.

I finish off this dish with chopped cherry tomatoes and lots of mint.

It is also amazing simply spread on Maltese bread with the fresh tomatoes and mint used as a garnish.

My lucky makeovers
