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

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 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.

I realize I might be defeating the purpose by using bacon instead of prosciutto but these were awesome!  I kind of felt like the balsamic mixture was kind of pointless because it didn't really stand up to the flavor of the bacon but these were a hit, nonetheless.
