Salads are one of our favorite dishes to prepare in summer because they are really fresh and perfect for any meal. You can use them either as a main dish or as a side dish… They are super versatile!
Another of the great things about salads is that you can prepare them in advance, even the day before, and keep them in the fridge and take them with you whenever you need in a food container or in any hermetically sealed jar that you have around the house. With this recipe, you have a very healthy dish ready to take to the beach, to the office, to a picnic, etc. We share with you this idea and you choose where to enjoy a delicious avocado and octopus salad!
1 tray of half cooked octopus from el Rey del Pulpo
250 g cherry tomatoes
1 red onion
Cilantro or parsley to taste
Virgin Olive Oil
The first thing we will do to prepare our avocado salad with octopus is to prepare the cooked octopus. We remove it from the tray, and as we are going to serve it cold, it is important to remove the gelatin. To do this, we can leave it for a while at room temperature or wash it under the tap.
The second step is to cut the octopus into slices, neither too thin nor too thick, about 2 mm approximately. Add it in a bowl and season it with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Next, we are going to cut into small pieces the rest of the vegetables: the red onion, the cherry tomatoes (they can be of another kind if you like them better or if you already had them at home) and the lettuce. Add everything in a bowl of your choice to prepare the salad.
Finally, peel the avocados, cut them into small dices and mix them in the bowl with the vegetables.
Once we have all the ingredients mixed in the bowl, add the extra virgin olive oil, a squeeze of lime and a little parsley or cilantro, depending on the ingredient you like best to prepare this delicious avocado and octopus salad.
Finally, just stir everything well and enjoy this delicious salad.
