Fresh Tomato Eggplant Spread

Holidaycooking's picture
The fresh tomato and eggplant spread is a lovely herbed vegetable spread. Prepared with baked eggplant, combined and mixed well with veggies like zucchini, tomatoes and green onions, the spread is flavored with a three herb medley. Chilled and served with crusty garlic bread or other dippers of choice, it is appetizing and delightful!
