Eggplant Appetizer Recipe

We don’t eat eggplant often in our family. First time I have tried this, I was visiting my friends. I was very impressed with flavors, it was simple but something I have never tried. Later on I found out that this is actually pretty common appetizer in Slavic community. Very easy appetizer to fix up for party.
