Octopus Salad


In Greece Octopus is a famous ingredient prepared in so many different ways:Boiled,barbecued,with pasta and even baked in the oven.You can take canned Octopus for this recipe,because cleaning the little bugger is a pain in the butt.The salad is a quick meal for a hot summer day!

You need :
Salad of your choice (I chose mixed Salad rdy 2 eat)
1 slice of fresh pineapple (diced)
1 carrot (grated)
1 small cucumber (cut into thin slices with a veggie peeler)
1 small red bell pepper (diced)
1 spring onion (sliced)
1 can of octopus
-any veg you love in salads

For the dressing
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
the juice of a half lemon
1 tablespoon yogurt (I chose Greek low fat)
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 garlic clove (I took 1/3)crushed
1/2 teaspoon chopped dill
1 teaspoon mayonnaise

Combine all the sauce ingredients and whisk well.Drain the juices from the canned octopus.
Mix all the veg/salad well and dress with the dressing.
The Pineapple compliments the octopus very well.
