This is a delicious Romanian eggplant salad that is amazingly simple and even more delicious. You won’t believe the flavor you get from just three ingredients. The key is in the specific but simple preparation.

I can’t tell you how many times I find myself with a bunch of fresh vegetables and no idea what to do with them. I love to browse the farmer’s market and pick up whatever looks good. The challenge then is how to take those random items and make something good. I turned cauliflower and leek into an amazing soup that I just had to share with you.

If you thought this post was about what to do with a bunch of leftover moussaka from your last Greek cooking extravaganza, you’re going to be disappointed. If you make moussaka right, there won’t be any leftovers anyway. 😉 If you haven’t made or had moussaka before, you’re in for a real treat.

I’ve experimented with various asian peanut sauce recipes. There is some kind of peanut sauce variation in Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Malaysian and other culinary cultures. Most recipes I’ve tried had some less common ingredient I didn’t have or just didn’t taste good. I finally hit on something that tastes great to me and is made with ingredients I almost always have.
