In salad bowl, combine juice from 1 orange, 1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp ground
pepper. Whisk in 1/4 cup olive oil and set aside. Steam 1/2 pound North and South okra until
just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and dry well. Trim off stem ends and cut into thin slices.
Combine in bowl with 1 red onion, finely diced, 1 tbsp capers, 1/4 cup each chopped parsley and
basil. Garnish with orange zest and chopped hard boiled egg.
