Another popular dish Filipinos loves to eat as an appetizer or "pangpagana". The richness of roasted eggplant with a hint of sweetness from onion and tomato plus the saltiness of the salted egg is what you can call a perfect combination.

This Ensaladang Talong is good when served with fried or grilled fish, chicken or meat. The eggplant can either be boiled or grilled and mixed with chopped tomatoes and onions. 

With this special ensaladang talong recipe, I added salted egg or itlog na maalat, green onions and cilantro and it tasted so delicious. How I wish I made four eggplant instead of just two.
