This salad travels well for picnics and work lunches, and keeps for several days in the fridge. Makes a great stuffing for pita pockets, or over cooked bulgur or brown rice.

Zaalouk is a Moroccan eggplant and tomato salad that incorporates a large amount of garlic and fresh herbs. It's best made in the height of Summer when the tomatoes are in their prime, and can be served warm or cold - I prefer it warm and mixed with chickpeas.

This recipe is super easy, don't get bogged down on exact measurements. This dish is even better the 2nd and 3rd day after it's made.

Found this great recipe for one of my favorite Ethiopian dishes on International Vegetarian Union.

The amount of servings is listed as 8 - which would make this a "side dish". However, I often eat double portions as a "main dish".
