It makes you think of eggplant salad, it can be prepared with eggplant, as done here, but I love it more in the simple version. We eat it every summer vacation in the country, in Vrancea county. From the time the bell rang for the summer holidays until the beginning of school, I stayed with my aunt, and she often prepared this salad with the aubergines from her own garden.

I would say that we have been eating organic and healthy since that time, because my uncle, who took care of the garden, did not use chemicals or fertilizers other than chicken manure or cow dung from the neighbors.

And for the gogonele salad recipe we only need green tomatoes, onions, oil and salt. In order for the salad to be good, use the eggplants that are starting to ripen. They will taste very good.

I will not give fixed quantities for Moldovan gogonele salad. Because there are people who use more or less oil. So is salt: I put a reasonable amount, but there are people who are used to eating saltier food.

Finely chop the green tomatoes, just as you chop the eggplant for the salad and let them drain in a sieve.

We put them in a bowl and rub them with 2-3 tablespoons of oil (I had 600 g of gogonele, we put oil depending on the taste and how much the gogonele can absorb - I think I used around 100 ml). Add salt and finely chopped onion, mix and taste to check if we still need salt or oil.
