Ingredients


  • 4 quarts water

  • 3 pounds frozen octopus, thawed

  • 3 cloves garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 2 celery ribs, diced

  • ⅓ cup parsley, chopped

  • ¼ cup vinegar peppers, diced

  • ½ cup canned black olives, sliced

  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil

  • ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper

  • ⅛ teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in an 8-quart pot.
  2. Rinse the octopus and place it in the pot to gently simmer, uncovered, until the tentacles are easily pierced with a sharp knife, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Remove the octopus and let cool to room temperature. Cut off and discard the head, then cut the tentacles into 1 inch pieces.
  4. Place the octopus in a large mixing bowl along with the rest of the ingredients and combine well. Allow the salad to marinate in the refrigerator from 4 hours to overnight.
  5. Remove the salad from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy with a crusty bread!
