Baked aubergine with tangy tomato dressing

You can never go wrong with this beautiful combination of textures and flavours; the earthiness of the smoked aubergine balanced by the sharp sweetness of the tomatoes which is calmed only by the richness of the olive oil and the fresh coriander. A perfect accompaniment however I would give this pride of place as the main course.
