Octopus and mussel salad

Octopus and Mussel Salad Recipe

Octopus salad, I like to cook octopus, it reminds me of great vacation memories in Greece, here is a sea salad. Cooking octopus in a saucepan with a full-bodied broth. The stern needs cooking long enough to be eaten, it always stays a little hard, but that’s what makes its charm. When tasted in restaurants with your feet in the water, they are always very fragrant and rarely hard, but the Greeks are the specialists. A nice salad of octopus and mussels to eat under the trees on a hot day.
