Who'd ever think of octopus salad as festive?


I bought two pounds of octopus from The Daily Catch on Commercial Drive (took about 20 minutes to defrost) and it served 8 guests. 

I just happened to have a pomegranate on hand and a few sprigs or arugula in the garden. My dinner guests loved it (or so they said) so I thought you might too.  Two packages of octopus only cost $20.

Cool the tentacles, brush with a little olive oil, and chuck them on the BBQ for a few minutes.


Here is the recipe, minus the pomegranate.
