  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.
  2. 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.

This was wonderful! Previously, I have only fried okra or put into gumbo. I used fresh out of my neighbors garden, and sauteed quickly just until tender crisp - perhaps that is why it didn't turn "slimy". I did substite olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and added some red pepper flakes for kick. Was a hit with my company. I will definitely make again. Thanks!



Excellent side dish! Fresh cut okra-when in season. works just as well as the frozen cut variety. For those that like the 'taste' of bacon grease, as another reviewer said, try this: after mixing the sugar, vinegar and oil together pour it into the skillet and stir. This will help the sugar melt quickly and also 'pick up' the flavor of the bacon. Remove from heat and cool slightly. pour over the veggie mix and toss. Add crumbled bacon. This is equally good served at room temperature.



I have had a variation of this with breaded okra. It is absolutely delicious and addicting! However, this un-breaded version is going to be better for you and just as good! I'm doing the low carb thing, and if I substitute splenda for the sugar, this is completely "legal"!
