I had these at a tea room, and they were delicious. Then Paula Deen had them in a magazine or somewhere, and I got up the nerve to try them.
People look at them and say "NO WAY!" and then someone will sample them and say "WOW, these are wonderful" and then before I know it they are all gone. They look like sushi, and the taste is really surprisingly good. Here's how:

Pickled Okra Sandwiches

1 loaf of white bread
jar of pickled okra, drained and dried on paper towel
8 ounce package of cream cheese
dried parsley.

Cut the crusts off the bread slices. Roll one slice with a rolling pin until flat. Spread cream cheese over it. Lay one spear of okra on one side and roll up. Do as many as you have bread and/or okra spears.
Using just a small amount of cream cheese, spread very lightly on sandwich roll, and roll it in dried parsley. (I usually mix a little onion powder and garlic salt and sprinkle it on before I roll it in the parsley). Cut each into 3 small rolls. Keep refrigerated until served.

Go ahead be brave and try it.
Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
