A gorgeous hearty Middle Eastern Salad packed full of delicious goodness. If you can’t get hold of the baby aubergine then use 2 regular sized aubergine and cut them into large chunks. A great salad to prepare in advance and make sure you make extra as it’s incredible cold the next day. One of the perks of food blogging is I get sent all sorts of delicious ingredients to play with, one of my absolute favourite brands is @belazu their Tahini is particularly amazing. Smooth, creamy, no nasty bitterness and runny as it should be. Teamed up with their pomegranate molasses 😍 it’s a heady combination. Let me know what you think?
