Chef Justine shares a tip for salting eggplant to make a better, less bitter involtini.

Salting eggplant helps draw out its bitter juices and seasons the vegetable from the inside out. It also improves the texture, helping the eggplant cook up tender rather than becoming waterlogged. Try it at home when you order our Eggplant involtini with Persian cucumber salad in your Sun Basket this week.
