I guarantee you this okra is not slimy! I remembered a tip that I heard on a cooking show about vinegar when I received some fresh okra and needed to come up with a new and different way to cook it that was healthy and still delicious. This recipe fits the bill and it is so super easy you can throw it together in a flash!
