Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (89 votes)

Spiced eggplant, lentils and mangoes combine deliciously in this Indian-inspired vegetarian salad. Customize the spiciness of this by choosing mild, medium or hot versions of salsa, chili powders and curry powder. The flavor is even better when the salad is prepared ahead. Recipe by Nancy Baggett for EatingWell.

"Loved it! Used cashews instead of peanuts and substituted cumin for some of the chili powder. "

Very nice light meal. We made this to eat by the pool. The flavors were sensational, especially the cilantro which we increased. The was even better the next day!


This was excellent. My husband was skeptical as some of his least favorite ingredients went into the mix (eggplant, lentils, etc.) but was pleasantly surprised at the finished product. "This is delicious!" I agree. I used the same bowl to toss the spiced eggplant before cooking and to assemble the eggplant, lentils and dressing after which made cleanup a breeze. Dry lentils cooked up while I waited for the eggplant to roast.


This was delicious and easy. I used mild salsa and curry as I don't like very spicy things. This was unusual and very very tasty. One of the best I've gotten from Eating Well which I subscribe to and have been using as my main recipe source for several years. A winner!
