Raw eggplant salad

Raw eggplant salad

The first time I came across a recipe with raw eggplant I was quite suspicious, but then tried it and realized it was really good. So in this "eggplant week" I've decided to prepare a raw eggplant salad rather than offering you the more than classic stuffed eggplant, or mozzarella grilled eggplant...

For two as a side dish I used 1 Japanese eggplant, 1 sprout of myoga (wait a little there's a post coming very soon about it), a little of katsuo bushi, soya sauce. You can add shiso leaves if you have some, I didn't this time. I cut the eggplant in small bites and drain the water with salt (like you may do for cucumbers), then I slice the myoga finely, (and the shiso if any). Then mix the eggplant and the myoga (and shiso). Serve on a plate, add a bit of soya sauce top with the katsuo bushi and it's ready to eat!
