Ensaladang Okra

warm okra and tomato salad Ensaladang Okra

This warm salad is a simple side dish made out of steamed okra, tomatoes, onion and bagoong. It was inspired by the Filipino dish steamed okra served with bagoong. Basically, it is similar in concept but varied in presentation. I also included additional ingredients that will add texture and flavours to the original dish. Best consumed with fried or grilled seafood, the saltiness and sour flavour from the lemon juice along with its unique texture is a good pair to any dry dish and rice.


around 20 pcs okra, sliced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large white onion, chopped
juice from 1 lemon
2 tbsp bagoong monamon


1. Place okra in a steamer and steam until cooked.
2. Mix together steamed okra, tomatoes, onion and bagoong.
3. Place in serving bowls then serve with freshly squeezed lemon juice on top.
