Okra salad


Side dish today, May 5, 2016
First time using okra, and was pleasantly surprised , I made a whole chicken - 200ºC for 60min in preheated oven, and it was really delicious.
6 servings

  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen cut okra
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup corn oil
  • ¼ cup white vinegar

1) Place bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned, then remove to paper towels to drain. Pour off most of the bacon grease, leaving a thin coating on the pan. Add okra to the bacon grease in the skillet, and fry until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer the okra to a salad bowl, and toss with the onion, green pepper, and tomato. Crumble in the bacon.

In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, corn oil, and vinegar until the sugar has dissolved. Pour over the salad, and toss to coat. Chill for 30 minutes before serving.
