Provençal Salad

This salad is typical from Provence, France. Well... the matter is that is colorful, different, and delicious!


  • 1 small eggplant sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil  
  • 1 3/4 sliced zucchini 
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and sliced 
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 TB chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup black olives, halved and pitted
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • pepper to taste

Place the eggplant slices in a colander. Sprinkle salt and leave them for about 30 minutes. Rinse with water and dry them in paper towels.

Heat half of the oil in a frying pan, add the eggplant slices, and
sauté them on both sides. Place them in a bowl.

Add the remaining oil and
sauté the zucchini and red pepper for about 10 minutes. 

Add the garlic and pepper continuing for 2 more minutes.

Add this to the eggplant already in the bowl with the sliced tomatoes, olives, parsley, lemon juice, and toss them thoroughly.

Let it cool. Serve with diner rolls.
