Fried Okra Salad Recipe

Wondering what to do with those tomatoes & okra from the garden, make some...

Fried Okra Salad

1 1/2 lbs okra
2-3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
Veg oil for deep frying
2  large tomatoes, seeded & chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1 bunch green onions, diced
6 slices turkey bacon, cooked & crumbled
1/2 cup veg oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar

Toss cleaned okra into beaten egg, then toss into breadcrumbs to coat. Fry breaded okra in vegetable oil; drain on paper towels.  In a medium bowl, combine okra, tomatoes, bell pepper, green onions, and bacon.  In a small saucepan, combine oil, sugar, & vinegar.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves.  Pour over okra mixture, tossing gently to coat.  Serve immediately.  Makes about 6 servings.
