Missy’s Fried Okra Salad

A friend recently shared what I thought was a very unusual recipe for Fried Okra Salad.   I’ve lived in the south all of my life and had never heard of such a thing.  I was instantly intrigued and knew I had to give it a try.  After all, she assured me that she has to share the recipe whenever she takes it out.

Last week I had a “recipe testing” day.  There were three recipes I wanted to try and I started with the Okra Salad first thing.  I had planned to have a bite and then take a big bowl up to my friends at the bank.  However, my friends at the bank never got to try it!  It was so delicious that I had a big bowl and then went back for seconds.  It was my breakfast and my lunch that day.  Obviously, I don’t need to be having recipe testing days often!
