Today I want to share with you a very easy dish. In fact, it is almost a “non-recipe” as all you have to do is cut the ingredients and mix them together. Well, you may have to boil the octopus and potatoes too if you cannot find them ready. But that’s about it. I used to eat a lot of this during my summer holidays in Sicily, so it brings back lots of beautiful memories. It makes a great light main dish or a classy starter. Enjoy!
Ingredients (for 4 people):
1 medium sized octopus, boiled and cut into 2 cm – 1 inch pieces
5 green olives, chopped
½ tbsp capers
2 tbsp giardiniera (mixed pickled vegetables)
1 small boiled potato, cubed into 2 cm – 1 inch pieces (optional)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp parsley, minced
2 tbsp celery, minced
1 clove garlic, crushed
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the chopped ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
Keep it in the fridge until ready to serve it. This is best eaten cold or at room temperature.
