This chilled roasted eggplant and peppers salad is a great side dish or an appetizer in the summer. It's perfect for parties; just place a bowl of tortilla chips next to it. You can also serve this hot with grilled chicken or fish. Either way, it's delicious!

Easy Caponata

Rating: 5 stars 5
Caponata is a Sicilian dish with eggplant, zucchini, tomato, and peppers traditionally cooked in oil and vinegar and flavored with sugar, raisins, capers, olives, and pine nuts. It's tangy, sweet, crunchy, and salty all at the same time. Serve at room temperature as a side dish to grilled fish or as a starter on toasted bread. Store leftovers in fridge and reheat gently. It will taste even better the next day!
