grilled octopius salad

This is the perfect summer appetizer to WOW your guests.  No joke, this will get a wow.

It’s super fast, super easy, super light and it tastes awesome.

Bonus points?  It’s affordable, lean, usually wild and high in protein.  You can get octopus at your local fish market or at some of your larger local grocers.  I love to get mine at Longo’s; they always clean it very very well.  This is my go to recipe, simple and quick, just take care not to over cook as that’s when your octopus can turn from luscious to rubbery in a snap.
