  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pierce eggplants several times with a fork, and place on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, or until completely softened. Cool completely. Remove skin and chop fine. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, and set aside.
  3. In a skillet, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat until lightly browned. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, the vinegar, sugar, oregano, and basil until well blended and sugar is dissolved. Pour over the eggplant, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and toss again. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

I served this as a dip on french bread, in a pita as a sandwich and then finished it off as a salad. A real party in your mouth.

This is awesome! My husbands comment was "this is really good, I want to have this at least once a week!" I am making it again tonight to serve as a side with spaghetti and meatballs. If cut i...

I love this as a sandwich on toast or with crackers.

The flavors were quite good, but the texture was slightly more slimy than I would have liked. I may puree or mash this next time, rather than chopping the eggplant. Also, I ate this at lukewarm ...

This was so-so. It was fairly flavorful, but the consistency didn't do it for us.

This "Eggplant Salad" was excellent! Quite honestly, the eggplant that I had (long skinny ones about the size of giant carrots) tasted sweetish and excellent by themselves just after baking befo...
