Octopus salad is a very appetizing and fresh appetizer but can also be served for a light dinner as a main dish, especially in summer
The most important things are two: that the octopus is fresh and that it is cooked well ( it should not skin).
To get a softer octopus you can keep 12/24 in the freezer ( maturing)this will break down the fibers and it will be more tender.
an octopus of about 1 kg
carrots celery fresh spring onion
