Spicy Summer Eggplant Salad

This healthy, delicious Spicy Summer Eggplant Salad recipe infuses a typical salad entrée with Japanese “umami” or savor. Mirin, a cooking sake, can usually be found in the international foods aisle of the grocery store or at specialty Asian markets. If possible, opt for genuine “hon” mirin, which has a higher alcohol content of around 12%. The imitation kind, usually called “mirin-type”, is primarily sugar.

The raw garlic in this spicy summer eggplant salad dish adds an extra dimension but can be omitted for those with sensitivity or when serving a romantic dinner. Leftover sauce can be refrigerated and reused for up to 2 days as a quick lunch salad dressing.
