Octopus Salad – Salada de Polvo

Many of you may of never eaten Octopus, but believe me it’s delicious! I find the taste similar to lobster but the meat is a bit chewier. This recipe is very easy to prepare and deliciously different than anything you’ve ever tasted!

Don’t let it’s appearance scare you away! Enjoy!
