Warm Okra and Tomato Salad
This warm salad is a simple side dish made out of steamed okra, tomatoes, onion and bagoong it was inspired by the Filipino dish steamed okra served with bagoong. Basically it is similar in concept but varied in presentation, I also included additional ingredients that will add texture and flavours to the original dish. Best consumed with fried or grilled seafood, the saltiness and sour flavour from the lemon juice along with its unique texture is a good pair to any dry dish and rice.
around 20 pcs okra, sliced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large white onion, chopped
juice from 1 lemon
2 tbsp bagoong monamon
- Place okra in a steamer and steam until cooked.
- Mix together steamed okra, tomatoes, onion and bagoong.
- Place in serving bowls then serve with freshly squeezed lemon juice on top.
This reminds me of what Pete’s secretary used to make for us when we were living in Mauritius.
Oooh..I’m so hungry now..sounds divine..
I love Okra and this salad is delicious! I usually bake or braise Okra, I’m going to try this salad for sure!
I don’t use okra nearly enough. In fact, I just had for the first time not that long ago. It was fantastic. I need to use it more. 🙂
I like okra too…my recipe is simple….wash the okra…put it in the pan with soy sauce, crushed garlic, olive oil, a bit of chili, and a bit of vinegar……nice with boiled rice….
I never know what to do with okra, thanks for the idea!!!
I’ve never heard of okra in salads. I will tell my mum about this.
I know okra isn’t for everyone, but it is one of my favorites!
I never know what to do with okra…this seems like a great option!
looks very healthy… and i love bagoong.. yum yum.. smells like hell for some.. hahahah
I know its healthy but I do not want to eat vegetable salad. Maybe if I reach 40yrs old, I will think about healthy food and living. 😀
yan ang masarap kainin….kamayan yan bro!!!!
This is definitely on my list to try. Next time we have a cookout I’m making this for a side.
This is wonderful, I had to use anchovie paste and it was still just delish!
Thanks for trying it out
