Had this at a birthday party recently and, it was so delicious, I had to have the recipe. As the chef gave it to me, I quickly jotted it down on a pink paper napkin and have been guarding that napkin ever since. Thought I'd better post it online so it won't get misplaced. It is a bit different than the other Okra Salads posted here. As I haven't made it yet, prep and cook times are guesstimates and don't include cooling.

  1. Fry okra according to package direction. Cool to room temperature.
  2. When okra is room temperature, gently stir in green onion, bell pepper, tomatoes and bacon.
  3. In separate bowl, mix together sugar, vegetable oil and vinegar until well blended.
  4. Pour dressing over okra mixture and gently toss to coat.
  5. Chill to allow flavors to blend.
  6. I don't salt my recipes, but feel free to add salt, if needed to taste.
