Fried Okra Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes, Arugula, and Green Goddess Dressing
Folks who generally don’t like okra (yet another under-appreciated vegetable) actually love fried okra. I often think about texture and the role it plays in salads. In this case, the crunch of the fried okra replaces that of the crouton. You really want to hunt for smaller okra pods, which will be less wooden than some of the bigger ones. Look for pods that are bright in color, firm, and blemish free.
