Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 °. 

  • Bring lady peas to a boil in salted water. As peas cook, skim foam from surface of the water. Let cook for 25-30 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside to cool completely.

  • Toss okra halves with oil, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread okra in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake at 425 ° for 15-20 minutes or until browned and crisp, stirring okra halfway through cooking. Set aside.

  • To assemble the salad, combine lady peas, tomatoes, corn, sprouts, and peaches in a bowl. Toss with desired amount of Herbed Avocado-Tahini Dressing. Top with roasted okra. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
