About Dried Eggplant Salad:

Dried vegetables are common in Turkey and the most famous one is dried tomatoes. Other vegetables and fruits like zucchini, pepper; apple, quince etc. are also dried and consumed frequently. They can keep their freshness (or dryness) for months or maybe years, so this is a good way to store foods. In villages, people used to hang them by using ropes and make them dry with sunlight for centuries. And honestly it is a perfect way to have naturally dried vegetables and fruits. I also use this method to get dry foods.
