A sweet-tangy balsamic glaze makes this summertime appetizer irresistible. Using two skewers for the wrapped okra makes it easier to flip on the grill.

Serves 8 (serving size: about 4 wrapped okra halves)


+ Add To Shopping List
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 pound okra pods, cut in half lengthwise
4 (1/2-ounce) slices prosciutto, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide strips
Cooking spray


Hands-on: 20 Minutes
Total: 30 Minutes

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

2. Combine 3 tablespoons oil, vinegar, honey, rind, pepper, and salt in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.

3. Wrap okra halves with prosciutto strips. Thread wrapped okra onto 8 (12-inch) skewers. Brush wrapped okra evenly with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.

4. Place okra on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 8 minutes or until prosciutto is crisp and okra is crisp-tender, turning once after 4 minutes. Brush wrapped okra with half of balsamic mixture; grill 1 minute. Remove from heat; drizzle with remaining balsamic mixture.
