Okra and Tomates

I tried to have my husband name this dish.  He said to call it, "Okramater Salad".  Ummmmm. NO!  Then he said to call it "Okramater Goulash".  Ummmmm.  NO, again! Haha! So I just called it simply what it was: Okra and Tomatoes.
 Our oldest son grew the okra in our garden, but I didn't want to fry it with breading.  I put a little bit of olive oil in a frying pan, along with a pat of butter. Olive oil will burn quickly, so adding the butter allows it to cook at a higher temperature. It also makes it have a more "fried" flavor.
 I stir fried the okra until it was soft, beginning to brown, and no longer sticky/stringy.
Then I added sweet cherub tomatoes. They weren't home-grown, but tasted really good.  I cooked this for five minutes or so....just until the tomatoes began to soften.

We really liked this dish! It had a great, fresh flavor....like fresh from the garden!

I love that combination with that salad, but this would be healthier!
