This recipe was shared by my mom. She is an amazing cook. I remember her making this wonderful dish throughout my childhood and we used it as a spread on bread. This was a family tradition. To this day I still make this recipe for my husband, and he loves this dip, and he eats it with rye bread. The tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, bell peppers, garlic, salt and pepper make a great combination as a side dish or appetizer. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
