What You Need

1
head  of garlic
1
Tbsp.  olive oil
1
large  eggplant (1-1/2 lb.)
1
can  (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, drained
1/4
cup  chopped fresh parsley
2
Tbsp.  chopped red onions
2
Tbsp.  balsamic vinegar
1
Tbsp.  KRAFT Shredded Parmesan Cheese
 Thin wheat snack crackers

Make It

HEAT oven to 375°F.

CUT 1/2-inch-thick slice off top of garlic, exposing cloves; discard top. Brush cut-side of garlic lightly with oil; wrap tightly in foil. Place on baking sheet. Pierce eggplant in several places with fork or sharp knife. Place on baking sheet with garlic. Bake 50 min. to 1 hour or until both are tender; cool slightly.

PEEL eggplant, then cut into small pieces; place in medium bowl. Mince 3 garlic cloves. Add to eggplant along with tomatoes, parsley, onions and vinegar; mix well. Refrigerate 2 hours. Meanwhile, refrigerate remaining garlic for another use.

SPRINKLE eggplant mixture with cheese just before serving. Serve as a dip with the crackers.
