This recipe has been on my MUST MAKE list for a while, Macedonian Salad comes from The Moosewood Cookbook, today I’m sharing my version of that recipe with you. I love to read old cookbooks and Molly Katzen’s Moosewood is right up there at the top of the list. I like the recipes, they’re funky old 70s hippie food, but the drawings, doodles and assorted artwork make the book a pleasure to page through. Don’t get me wrong though the cookbook may be old but the recipes are delicious and some are true staples of a vegetarian lifestyle.
Eggplant seems to be on sale now and plentiful so this is the time to grab one and make a delicious marinated salad. I would suggest roasting the eggplant the day before you plan to eat the salad so it has time to marinate. Maybe you could throw it in with something else you’re already having for dinner so you don’t have to heat up the oven one more time? Just a thought, I hate to spend more on electricity than I have to.
Mollie suggested serving it with a bit of feta and since that is not in my diet plan at the moment I did not. It would be fantastic with feta so sprinkle away all you non-paelo peeps.
