Griddled Aubergine with Cucumber, Walnuts and Cumin

Introduction

I love this dish, with the hot, blackened aubergine against the crisp, cold cucumber and the warming walnut and cumin – a refreshing combination, and perfect for a hot day. Aubergine cooked on the barbecue tastes like nothing else, but I’ve given options for making this dish indoors as well, so you can have it year-round.
