Fried Okra Salad

I just read a blog and someone asked her what okra was????? Are you kidding me...okra. LOVE it. It reminded me of a recipe that my sister-in-law Lindsay gave me (hope she doesn't mind me sharing it). It is WONDERFUL so I thought I'd share it with my faithful readers...haha!!!!! ENJOY!!!

1 1/2 lbs. breaded frozen okra
Vegetable oil for frying
2 lg. tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/w green bell pepper, diced
1 bunch green onions, diced
6 slicers bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/2 C. vegetable oil
1/4 C. sugar
1/4 C. distilled white vinegar

Fry okra in vegetable oil according to package directions; drain on paper towels. In a medium bowl, combine okra, tomatoes, bell pepper, green onions, and bacon. In a small saucepan, combine oil, sugar, and vinegar. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves. Pour over okra mixture, tossing gently to coat. Serve immediately.

YUM! Wish the Coach like okra - he won't eat it. Or tomatoes. What is with that? :-)
