Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Boiling potatoes; (preferably
; yellow-fleshed),
; quartered
; lengthwise and cut
; crosswise into
; 3/4-inch pieces
½ pounds Okra; trimmed and cut
; crosswise into
; 1/4-inch-thick

½ cup Cornmeal
Vegetable oil for deep-frying
1½ tablespoon Cider vinegar
1½ teaspoon Honey
¾ cup Mayonnaise
1 Tomato; seeded and chopped

In a steamer set over boiling water steam the potatoes, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are just tender, transfer them to a bowl, and let them cool to room temperature. In another bowl toss the okra with the cornmeal and salt and pepper to taste, transfer the mixture to a sieve, and shake off the excess cornmeal. In a deep skillet heat 1 inch of the oil to 375F., in it fry the okra, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until it is golden, and transfer it to paper towels to drain. In a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, the honey, the mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon water, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the dressing to the potatoes with the okra and the tomato and combine the salad well.
