  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add remaining olive oil to the skillet; add eggplant and bell pepper. Saute until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add tomato, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes more. Return sauteed onion to the skillet. Adjust seasonings if necessary. Transfer eggplant mixture to a baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Cool before serving, about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute cilantro for parsley, if you like.

You can make this salad a day ahead, since the flavor is even better the next day.
