Eggplant Caviar

For Jenka:
I've not tried this (eggplant is not a favorite of mine) but this sounds
similar to what you had. I'm giving you the recipe as it is in the book so
you can adapt it as you wish. (I would omit the oil - and maybe the
yogurt). The recipe is from 1001 Low-Fat Vegetarian Recipes by Sue Spitler.

1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
