Lentil, Mango and Eggplant Salad

For this salad, we've used mainly eggplant, lentil, and mango, but did some serious mixing. First, we've marinated the eggplant with a curry based sauce and then roast it in the oven. Further on, we've made a sweet and sour dressing to go with all the aromas found in the salad: nutty lentil, spiced eggplant, and exotic mango.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, results really started to show, so wish me luck!
