Ensaladang Talong (Eggplant Salad)

  • 4 medium-sized Asian eggplants
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 2 green onions, chopped (for garnish)
  • Fresh cilantro (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your grill or oven. If grilling, cook the eggplants over medium heat, turning occasionally, until the skins are charred and the insides are soft. This usually takes about 10-15 minutes. 
  2. If roasting, you can do so in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 20-25 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Once done, let the eggplants cool slightly. Then, peel off the skins (they should come off easily after grilling or roasting) and discard them.
  4. Slice the eggplant flesh lengthwise and then cut into bite-sized pieces. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  5. Make the dressing by combining the vinegar, shallot, garlic, soy sauce, and lime juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
  6. Pour the dressing over the sliced eggplants. Add the diced tomato and toss gently to combine.
  7. Let the salad chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  8. Give it a gentle toss before serving garnished with green onions and cilantro. Enjoy!


  • Long and thin eggplant varieties work best for this recipe.
  • You can omit the tomato if wanted.
