I cut the tomato into four pieces. I help myself with a spoon and remove gently the fleshy interior without breaking the tomato wedges skin (usually I make appetizers with the tomato skin).

I cut the okras into slices.

Next, I add the tomato heart, parsley, black olives, and sunflower seeds. When I eat this starter, the okra slime texture mixed with the pulp of tomato is minimized.
