Today´s post is one of my recipes of Octopus salad. I love cold salads and I have different versions, this recipe is with vegetables.
In Portugal we have different types of tradicional salads that are served both as dish and starter, octopus is one of them. My favorite salads are Tuna, Octopus, "Ovas" (Fish eggs), Seafood, and Codfish, among others.
So, I bought fresh Octopus that had near 1,200 Kg:
~ After cleaning the octopus head and washing it well I cook the octopus in salted water with 1/4 onion and 1 tsp olive oil. I use a pressure-pan and cook it for 30/40 minutes in medium heat, depending on the octopus size. This one in the picture took 40 minutes to cook.
~At the same time, cook the vegetables in salted water and reserve, to cool. Then, cut the octopus and vegetables into a salad bowl. In this recipe I used:
~ Sweet corn
As dressing, you can use olive oil and vinegar or mayonaise, like I did this day:
