Scot's Aunt Brinda prepared this dish for a church potluck a few weeks ago. I could have made a meal off it. It's wonderful! I had her email the recipe to me.
1 1/2 pounds breaded okra fried brown and drained ( may use more okra if you want a big salad.)
2 large tomatoes chopped
1 green pepper
1 bunch green onions (I use blades and all)
6 slices bacon fried crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
Heat this until sugar is melted. Cool slightly.
I fry my okra and put it on paper towels to drain. Then I chop all the other ingredients together and pour the heated dressing mixture over it. I toss the okra in last. Can be made a few hours ahead of time to eat but won't be good made the night before it is to be eaten because the okra will get soggy....enjoy.
