This is now my favorite okra dish. It's simple, quick to make, and has a great presentation. I substituted cherry tomatoes and yellow onion, just because that was what I had on hand.

I like okra gumbo; my husband will only eat fried okra, if he has to have it. This was a wonderful combination between the two, satisfying us both with its wonderful flavor and texture. Great with cornbread! I followed the recipe and will use it again, especially for casual outdoor entertaining.
