Okra Salad Recipe

Okra is not just for Gumbo!  We eat okra in Japan, too.  It is actually a very popular vegetable in summer time there.  Okra is rich in vitamins and minerals, and so a healthy choice.  Here I made it into a very simple and easy salad.

    Recently returned from a wonderful visit to Japan. At breakfast I would find okra sliced on the bias and with an addition of sesame seeds. It was served cold and I think it must have been steamed. I just remember the fresh okra flavor but am guessing the bonito flakes must have been in there somewhere. Also enjoyed miso soup at every meal. Here I have only been able to find white miso. Is there a different recipe for the breakfast okra? Am searching for a Japanese grocery so I can duplicate some of these delightful dishes. Am trying to limit soy except for fermented soy. I usually use coconut oil or olive oil or real butter.
