  1. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned, then remove to paper towels to drain. Pour off most of the bacon grease, leaving a thin coating on the pan. Add okra to the bacon grease in the skillet, and fry until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer the okra to a salad bowl, and toss with the onion, green pepper, and tomato. Crumble in the bacon.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, corn oil, and vinegar until the sugar has dissolved. Pour over the salad, and toss to coat. Chill for 30 minutes before serving.

This has expanded my previous okra possibilities! I added a little more bacon, because bacon fat rules! And I added some blanched (frozen) black eyed peas! Yummy goodness!

Great summer recipe very light. I found the hints of adding bacon just before serving to be very helpful. I have done this dish 2 times in the past month as my garden okra is really coming in no...

Because I didn't have time to completely chill this, we ate it still slightly warm. I thought that the bacon might get lose it's crispness if I added it in with the veggies, so I sprinkled it on...

We always grow a ton of okra and are looking for new recipes for our favorite veggie. This was great. However I did make a few changes. I only cooked the fresh okra until tender and warm all ...

Wow! This was outstanding! I let it chill for about four hours before sampling, and I couldn't believe the flavor. Everything melds together so well. Like Caroline C, I added the bacon just befo...
