1 To make the dressing
Mix the CO YO, cucumber, garlic, lemon juice and dill in a bowl until well combined. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
2 Roast the eggplant
Pre-heat your oven to 390ºF
3 Using the tip of a knife, slice the flesh of the eggplant in a diamond cross-hatch pattern, by making two or three long cuts (being careful not to slice all the way through) in one direction, and then another set of similar cuts in the opposite direction.
4 Salt the cut side of the eggplants generously. The salt will help to pull out some of the moisture from the eggplant. Set aside for 20-30 minutes, then pat them dry.
5 Place the eggplants on a lined baking tray (cut side up) and lather them with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked through.
6. Before serving, dress the eggplants with the CO YO Tzatziki and a sprinkle of fresh dill. Enjoy!
