A great summer salad. Whenever I make it, everyone wants the recipe. This salad will be the best and crispiest if everything is prepared at the last minute.

To much sugar in the dressing for me. I would cut it down to a fourth of a cup. Read More

Made this (almost) exactly as stated and took it to a birthday dinner yesterday. Everyone loved it! I say almost because I couldn't find breaded okra so I breaded thawed okra in about 1 c. cornmeal mixed with 1/2 c. flour and a little salt and pepper then fried till crisp about 7 or 8 minutes. Perfect! I might add a little cayenne to the dressing next time just to kick it up a little but it doesn't need any changes at all! Definitely a keeper! Read More
