Top Review by PanNan

What a fantastic and different recipe! It's light and refreshing, but filling with the corn and fried okra. Enjoyed the crunchiness, too. The dressing is the perfect blend for this salad. I didn't change a thing, and believe it's perfect as is. All three of us at the table ageed that it is a 5 star. We'll make this again.
