Fried Okra Salad

This recipe is absolutely awesome.  I have made it several times and people just rave over it.  Try it.  This salad has a crunchy taste to it.

1 1/2 pounds breaded frozen okra
Vegetable oil for frying
2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1 bunch green onions, diced
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled (okay --you know that I used the already cooked kind that you stick in the microwave)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar

Fry okra in vegetable oil shortening to package directions, drain on paper towels.
In a medium bowl, combine okra, tomatoes, bell pepper, green onions and bacon.

In a small sauce pan, combine oil, sugar and vinegar.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar dissovles.  Pour over  okra mixture tossing gently to coat.  Serve immediately.

This is so very good.  You will be glad that you made this.
