Cut the aubergine into pieces and arrange in a single layer in a baking dish.
Pour in water 'til it reaches two-thirds of the way up the sides of the pieces and bake at 180°C for 45 minutes.
Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat, add the aubergine and sauté till golden brown.
Tip the aubergine into a bowl then add tomatoes to the pan with a slug of olive oil and the cumin; quickly sauté over medium heat until they're just soft and the skin is just blistering.

Combine dressing ingredients; toss through salad and serve.
