Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Many of us have only heard of deep fried okra but there are many other ways to use okra. Usually I dry mine in the dehydrator to use in minestrone soup during the winter.
This week I decided to try it RAW and I was pleasantly surprised. I received sweet corn from one of my CSA shares so I thought I'd sweeten the okra up a bit by adding the corn to it and here is what I came up with.
Okra Corn Salad
1-2 cups of tender okra sliced in 1/2 inch rounds
2 ears of sweet corn cut from cob
1 tomato diced
1 small sweet bell pepper diced
1 small onion diced
small handful of cilantro
dash of sea salt (optional)
Mix together and marinate.
This salad is delightfully refreshing and delicious!
I have a picture I hope to post later.
Here is a little nutritional info on Okra
I have found OKRA to be a very beneficial food to add for good digestive health.
*dehydrate and add as a crunchy salad topping (season to taste before drying)
