      Clean and trim okra just before cooking. Cut each okra in half lengthwise, if there are any pieces longer than 4 inches, cut them in half crosswise and then lengthwise.

      Heat the olive oil in a deep sided skillet over medium heat and add the onions along with the salt; cook until they begin to soften, approximately 4 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer.
    4. 4
      Add the tomatoes and bring the mixture to a boil.
    5. 5
      Decrease the heat to low and add the okra. Stir to combine.
    6. 6
      Cook, uncovered for 20 minutes.

      I have never cook fresh okra before but will be making this again. Excellent side dish and I served this with Chicken Medallions in White Wine Reduction. I also used fresh diced tomatoes. Made for *Fall 2008 PAC* Thanks!

      This was delicious. The okra was crisp tender in the time frame specified and not slimy. I did use fresh garden tomatoes in place of the canned and added a pinch of red pepper flakes to spice it up a touch. Made for *PAC Autumn 2008*
