What to do with pickled okra?
I grew up with fried okra and am no newcomer to the veg. But I've had very little pickled okra. I just bought a jar.. do you eat it straight up or put it in salad? What else can you do with it?
Straight up....it's a really unique addition to a relish tray. In the summer, I get a bushel of fresh okra and make my own, thinking I'll include it in gift baskets at Christmas. But unless you hide it, there's never any left after September.
You can chop or slice it to use in tuna or chicken salad. It is also a nice addition to a marinated veggie salad, as well as a good pickley counterpoint when tucked inside a grilled cheese.
