Keto Eggplant Salad

Keto Eggplant Salad

I never appreciated eggplants properly until I fell in love with Greek cooking! When cooked well, they become buttery, soft and so moreish. They work beautifully roasted and warm, grilled or baked then cooled in a salad like in this Keto Eggplant Salad.

I’d suggest using smoke almonds if they are easy to get – they add a beautiful complexity to the flavour, but this is just as delicious with normal roasted almonds or even raw almonds.

While you wouldn’t normally want to spend 40 minutes on a salad, it is mostly passive time with the eggplant baking. It’s perfect to get in the oven while you are cooking something else. I think this Keto Eggplant Salad would be perfect made into a larger batch and taken to a summer barbeque!
