Appetizing Ensaladang Talong
In this recipe, I’m going to teach you another one of my favorite recipes. Ensaladang Talong or eggplant salad is a vegetarian recipe that could be a main-course dish when served with rice. Usually however, it is a side dish for grilled meat or fish.
Anyone can make Ensaladang Talong as it is easy to prepare, the only cooking required is the grilling of eggplants. Once the eggplants are grilled, the flesh is removed using a fork and then seasoned with patis or bagoong and vinegar. Chopped onions and tomatoes are also added in this recipe.
Since it is very easy to make and only requires easy-to-find ingredients, Ensaladang Talong is popular throughout the country. Check out the rest of the recipe and try it out yourself!

Tita Kathy’s tip:
If you are not in the mood to fire up the grill, you can boil the eggplants instead. Until next time!
