We put a little olive oil on the okra and tomatoes after I sliced the tomatoes pretty thick. Then we grilled them both tossed with some salt and pepper and left out the vinegar and onions (not really a fan). Awesome!! We'll be doing this again!!! Read More

This salad was ok. I couldn't find white wine vinegar at the store so I used balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing instead. I think I'd like the grilled okra by itself better. Read More

Tip! If you are in a hurry instead of grilling the okra put them on a plate and microwave for about 3 minutes or until color turns bright green and then mix it with the tomato mixture. It doesn't provide as much flavor but it is quite good and very convenient. Read More

Love it! I made it indoors in a skillet over the stove with a little bit of olive oil. Also I accidentally got white cooking wine instead of white wine vinegar. I just used rice vinegar with a splash of the white wine and it still came out wonderful! Read More

What a good salad. I had to use frozen okra pods since okra isn't in season anymore and I "grilled" them on the stovetop since my grill is covered in 8 inches of snow. I oiled my skillet and grilled the pods over medium-high heat. It still worked out pretty well. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

We made this with okra that had been sliced and then sauteed in just oil until it stopped being stringy then a little longer. It was even good the next day (a little slimy but surprisingly little). I'm sure it wouldn't be great after even another day at least not to me but we loved this. Read More

I made this pretty much like the recipe called except I used fresh okra and tomatoes. It was still really good and everyone ate it up. Some of us put it over rise and others put it over our chicken. Then there were all the seconds in which it was plain. I know that many are giving this a 5 star rating after completely changing the recipe but I wanted to put it out there even if you don't have cajun or Zatarain's seasoning to add to it (which completely changes the flavor like going from Mexican flavor to Asian) it is still a good recipe. Give it a try! Read More
