The first thing I do is cut up the eggplant and toss it with vinegar and salt in a large bowl. It’s important to let it sit for 20 minutes in order to have the eggplant release moisture. Make sure to pat it dry afterwards to soak up the moisture. This allows for a crispier end result! It also allows the eggplant to absorb the other flavors better.
