    Gunslinger's Wife's Note:

    With only a few ingredients and about 10 minutes, you can enjoy light, crispy okra anytime. I prefer okra with a light flour coating versus corn meal. I want to taste the okra -- not the breading! Fried okra, a country staple, is best served hot alongside thick-sliced summer tomatoes.
