Fried Okra Salad

Directions

  1. For dressing: In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise, 1/4 cup buttermilk, and lemon juice. Stir in blue cheese. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  2. In a Dutch oven heat 2 inches vegetable oil to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl combine remaining 11/2 cups buttermilk, okra, green onions, jalapenos. In a resealable plastic bag combine flour, cornmeal, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Remove a quarter of the okra mixture from buttermilk mixture, shaking gently to remove excess. Add okra mixture to flour mixture; seal. Shake to coat.
  3. Fry coated okra mixture in hot oil 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. Repeat with remaining okra mixture. Serve with butter lettuce and dressing.

From the Test Kitchen

*

Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
