Oh how delightful vegetables can taste when prepared properly and mindful. This Grilled Eggplant Salad from In The Bowl Vegetarian Noodle Bistro located in Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle was truly the most exciting, satisfying, and delicious plate of food I have enjoyed in a long time.
The combination of grilled Japanese eggplant with charred green bell pepper and red onions was a lovely, crunchy trio. The salad dressing shined with slices of citrusy and pungent lemon grass, sweet basil and cilantro.
For extra crunch, crispy chow mein noodles were sprinkled over the top of the salad.
The salad also had wedges of tomato and spinach leaves, slightly wilted, intentionally, by the dressing.
I hope to be back!
