Step 1

To release the moisture from the eggplant, place the cubes on a large plate or bowl, add salt, and let them sit for 30 minutes.

Step 2

After 30 minutes, use a dishcloth to press and blot the eggplant cubes dry. This is a crucial step because too much moisture will result in soggy eggplant.

Step 3

Now it's time to season! Add avocado oil and sprinkle the cubes with turmeric. Then, coat thoroughly.

Step 4

Place the eggplant in the air fryer baskets, making sure not to overcrowd the pieces. Air fry at 400F for 15-20 minutes.

Step 5

Assemble the salad by adding chickpeas, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, onion, lemon and sumac to a large bowl and toss.

Step 6

Finish the salad by adding air fried eggplant along with the avocado pieces and toss gently.
