  1. Brush the aubergine on both sides with a little olive oil; you will need about 5 tbsp. Griddle, barbecue or grill the aubergine slices until lightly browned on both sides. Remove and arrange, overlapping, on a platter. This can be done on the previous day and chilled.

  2. Heat the red wine vinegar with the sugar in a small pan until it has dissolved, then brush over the aubergine slices. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan, add the garlic and fry quickly until lightly toasted, then pour the garlic and oil into a small bowl. Just before serving, scatter the garlicky oil and herbs over the aubergines.

Very good as part of a warm or cold buffet, easy to make, I like the slight tartness from the vinegar, made for a nice mezze/ tapas dish

This is so easy! I love this as you can prepare everything in advance for a cold buffet the next day. It's a bit different than the usual "rice & pasta salad".
I never have any leftovers.....
