      Just made this as a side dish to my Traditional Bahraini Chicken Machboos / Machbous, not sure if this is traditional or not but it all went very well together. This salad was light and fresh and you're right, blanching the okra kept it lovely and crunchy! I used balsamic vinegar and it gave it a great flavour. Thanks for sharing!

      A simple cool summer salad. The okra did hold a nice crispy texture. I used spring onions instead of white. For my taste, next time I would shift the vinaigrette closer to 1:1 oil and vinegar.
