This is a traditional southern recipe. Best, if using fresh summer vegetables, but still a delicious side using frozen vegetables and ripe tomatoes, from the grocery or canned. When using fresh okra, use small to medium sized pods, for tenderness. From Cooking Light Cookbook 1994, with a slight tweak.
