Salsa gives fun flavor to eggplant slices in this speedy dish from Alyce de Roos of Corunna, Ontario. "We had an overabundance of eggplant some years ago when this recipe caught my eye," she recalls. "My husband and I think it's delicious."

"My husband and I (and many friends) LOVE this recipe! What I've done is after my husband grills the eggplant, he brings them in to me, I add a spoonful of salsa, top with fiesta cheese and bake in the oven until the cheese melts - it's a meal all by itself!! Just FANTASTIC!!!"
