    We really liked this recipe. I bought okra at the farmer's market, and it cooked on the grill quickly with a wonderful flavor. The dipping sauce was good but a lot of trouble to make. Next time I think I will skip the sauce and add some balsamic vinaigrette on the okra. Defininately a keeper!

    If you like Okra you will love this because it is so easy to make. At first I didn't think this would work but I was wrong. Covering the okra with foil helps it to cook faster and it is wonderful. I did not use the sauce.

    Grilled Okra was wonderful. I didnt make the sauce it was that good by itself.

    When I grill vegetables, I'm always looking for interesting marinades or sauces to try, but okra is pretty unusual. It is good by itself or with just lemon juice, but I really liked this sauce. It was perfect for dipping. Draining the yogurt overnight was a hassle, but it was worth it. The texture and thickness were ideal.

    delicious! do serve with the yogurt dipping sauce- however- 1/2 the recipe (it makes alot!) and also use Greek yogurt (plain) and save the hassle of straining regular yogurt you are in for a treat!
