  • Parcley
  • Fresh meant leaves
  • 2 big tomatoes
  • Vine vinegar
  • Olive oil with nice fragrant


Grill or barbecue the aubergines and peppers peal carefully their skin and chop them into small peaces not as much as doing a puree.

Chop the garlic, mint and parsley and add them to the salad. Then add some salt according to your preference.

Blend your salad with vinegar and olive oil wait a little and service it. Alternatively you can keep your salad in the refregerator for a long time and serve it later after you add vşnegar and olive oil...
