Summer Okra Salad

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Since it's already the end of August, (where did the time go?) Stephen and I wanted to have one last summer dinner. This consisted of grilled meats and my mom's best summer sides: crunchy cole slaw and okra salad. We got a mini charcoal grill as a wedding gift that we store inside because we're not allowed to have grills at our apt complex. Stephen has become a grill MASTER and has uncovered the secret to grilling with charcoal. We can't wait to move into a house and get a bigger grill for Stephen.

Back to the Okra salad....

Dice the tomatoes and onions. Saute the onions for about 5 min. Once the onions have become translucent, add the okra and corn.

Saute onions then add okra and corn

Make about 4-5 slices of bacon. I used microwave bacon because it's easier and less messy. Chop the bacon and add to the skillet once the okra and corn are unfrozen. Also add the diced tomatoes.

Everything combined

Once everything is combined in the skillet, cook for another 3-5 minutes and enjoy. You can serve this dish warm or cold.
