Салат с осьминогами и белой фасольюIngredients

  • Octopus — 400 grams
  • White beans, boiled or canned — 400 grams
  • Cherry tomatoes — 400 grams
  • Arugula — 300 g
  • Extra virgin olive oil — 2 tablespoons

Method of preparation

  1. If you decide to cook white beans – soak for a few hours and then boil for 30-40 minutes.

  2. Boil the octopus in boiling water for literally 3 minutes (you can take and canned seafood). Put in a bowl and let cool to room temperature. And then cut them rings. If tentacles long, also cut in half. Place the sliced octopus in a large bowl – where you will mix the ingredients.

  3. Add the arugula, halved cherry tomatoes, beans (boiled or canned), olive oil and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Mix thoroughly and add a little more lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
    You can decorate the salad with lemon slices.
