I’m going to start out by saying, I really didn’t like this recipe. I love the ingredients—especially eggplant and fresh mozzarella—but the gelatin made from leaks, tomatoes, and garlic was definitely odd. To make it worse—in my opinion—is that the dish is served at room-temperature. It’s not a salad that would be served cold, and it’s not a hot dish—which I would have preferred with these ingredients—so, once again, just odd. Out of all of the people who came in contact with this dish, four refused to even try it and three of us we daring enough to eat it. Unfortunately, those of us who ate it generally agreed that it was 1) not worth keeping the leftovers; 2) not worth making again.
If you decide to make it anyway—even after this glowing review—please let me know what you think!
