Fried Okra Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CASunshine

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.

Excellent recipe! My husband loves fried this was a spin-off of that. I personally liked the sweet taste with the bacon flavor! I found it best to eat as soon as it okra coating started to get a little soggy after a day. Will definitely make again during summer okra season!
