Nice quick meal! I made it to the recipe, but left out the dill because I didn't have any. I served it with a mixed green salad and a tear and share cheesy bread (because that's what I had!) Very nice after a day at work.

I made this for supper with really cold tzatziki with mint. It's really delicious and was a big hit.

Lemon dressing really made the aubergines taste nice. Wouldn't cut/cook the auberines in the way they said again, but will make again with a side of potatoes.

Wasn't convinced about the aubergines cooking well this way and they didnt, they were very oily and tasteless. Wasted some good lamb in making this dish, very disappointing.

This was an easy recipie to make although don't cut the aubergine too thinly. It was very tasty and even my auberginephobic husband enjoyed it.
