Pan Seared Eggplant with Buttermilk Dressing
Hi Everyone! Today, I'm sharing my new favorite salad! This salad is packed with healthy ingredients and it is so delicious! I love anything with eggplant, goat cheese and pine nuts. The pine nuts bring a little extra crunch to the salad along with the cucumbers. It has a wonderful dressing made with buttermilk and sautéd shallots (they are so yummy on their own) and it would be good on any number of things including a sandwich. You'll have leftover dressing to experiment with if you like.
I won't say that this salad was quick to make, but it was worth it! It is also delicious leftover, just add more avocado the next day and have it for lunch. I was alone for dinner so it was the only thing I made, but next time, I'll serve it with grilled skewered shrimp. I hope you'll make it and let me know what you think! I didn't include the pine nuts and goat cheese in the recipe because I added them at the last minute. Add as much goat cheese as you like, you can't go wrong! Enjoy!
I served extra dressing in a beautiful handmade bowl, made by my daughter Rebecca! Be sure to take a look at her website to see more of her work!
I say this every week, but this week is flying by and I hope it's a good one so far!! I would love if you would follow me on Instagram @crazyblondelifeblog!
