Fresh Okra Corn And Tomato Salad

"Okra, sometimes referred to as “lady’s finger,” comes in green and red. Both varieties taste the same. It’s frequently used in Southern American cuisine and is a staple in gumbo. Some people find it unappealing due to its slimy texture. But, with this recipe, you won’t even notice that. Okra is rich in nutrients and has antioxidant properties. This recipe is an elevated version of a classic southern salad. Pair with Gruner Veltliner and other light white wines. "
