"This salad feels like summer! By combining some simple, high quality ingredients you can enjoy a summery seafood salad with buttery soft octopus and potatoes in no time. The only thing missing for a Mediterranean getaway at home? A chilled glass of white wine and a shadowy place to enjoy the warm breeze."

  • Step 1/4

    Wash the octopus and place it in a large pot. Peel onion and chop. Chop celery and carrot roughly and add the chopped vegetables to the pot. Add bay leaves, white wine, and enough water to cover the octopus. Season with salt, cover, and bring to a simmer. Let cook for approx. 1 hr. or until cooked through—this will depend on the size of the octopus.
