Melitzansalata Recipe

  Italian Dips

Olive oil
1 eggplant
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon fine chopped parsley, preferably flat leaf
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup yogurt
1 3 ounce package cream cheese
1 tablespoon bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Brush a baing pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Slice the eggplant in half the long way and place it cut side down on the oiled baking pan. Bake at 375F for 45 minutes, or until soft.
Cut the eggplant, including the skin, into small pieces and place in a blender or food processor. Add 3 tablespoons olive oil, the vinegar, lemon juice, parsley, and garlic. Blend until smooth.
Add the yogurt, cream cheese, and bread crumbs. Blend again and add salt and pepper. Refrigerate overnight.
Use as dip with bread, crackers, etc.
This is the Italian version of Eggplant Dip, sorry I can't find my recipe for the Middle Eastern Version.
