Cook's Notes

It's always a good idea to cut an eggplant right before you're ready to use it, as the flesh discolors rapidly. If it's fresh, it's not necessary to salt eggplant before cooking.

    I cooked the eggplant on a gas grill for the appropriate time but it needed another 5-6 minutes. The yogurt sauce asks that you grate a medium cucumber. I tried this with a 4-sided grater and another one-sided grater. Neither worked to do more than make a green water. I’d recommend mincing the cucumber and squeezing it dry. The sauce seems quite bland. I won’t be making it again.

    I was very clever and bought blueberry Greek Yogurt. That being said, I made this sauce with sour cream. It was very good, but perhaps a bit too much lemon (I used the juice from a rather small lemon, so ~2T. My family thought the sauce would lend itself well to a bit of dill weed as well.
