Here’s a little peek-a-boo at what I’m going with on the squares. Needs blocking, but I like it.
The green doesn’t show up very well in this picture. The first picture shows the true color of it.
And a Fried Okra Salad.
It is so freakin’ good.
I could not stop eating the fried okra right after I made it. I was afraid I’d eat it all up before I could make this salad. Here’s how you do it.
Rinse your okra with water leaving it wet. Cut it up, discarding the head and the tail, and place it in a bowl. Throw in a couple of handfuls of cornmeal and toss to coat the okra. Heat up some oil in a skillet. Dump in the okra and fry it until it’s browned, stirring occasionally. This only takes about five minutes. Drain on paper towels. Mixed your cooled okra with cut up tomatoes, chopped green onion, and salt.
Thank you to my sweet Aunt Naomi for the recipe!
