Marinated Eggplant

This is an elegant, yummy, not terribly difficult dish that will astound your guests!

At first, the recipe might seem unusual, but it is very popular in Italy and is an excellent appetizer. The dressing is very flavorful and if you are not afraid of anchovies, you will love the final result. This is the kind of recipe that the longer stays in the fridge the tastier it gets. I like to serve it on top of hearty Italian bread. Amazingly delicious!
