Additional Info:

This salad can remain in the refrigerator for several days.

Slice the eggplants crosswise into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of kosher salt. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Rinse eggplants under cold water, which removes the bitter taste, and dry well on a towel.

Heat the corn oil in a skillet and lightly brown eggplant slices over moderate heat for 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat and place in a serving bowl. Set aside to cool.

Put the tomato sauce, red pepper flakes, cinnamon, mint and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt in that same skillet.

Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. This will be long enough to integrate the flavors.

Pour the mixture over the eggplant and refrigerate until ready to use.

Serve cold or at room temperature.
