Octopus, pomegranate and rocket salad

I spied a bottle of beautiful looking octopus at my local store yesterday. The label identified it as ‘marinaded octopus.’ It was made by a local Greek company called Yiannos Catering. It looked like real food, with beautiful chunks of fresh red chilli, slices of lemon and fresh green bay leaves. I couldn’t resist buying it. I’m glad I did. It’s delicious. I thought it would be lovely in a salad with the pomegranate I have in the fridge.

Serves 2

1/2 cup risoni* cooked, rinsed and cooled
200 grams marinaded octopus, drained
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
2 cups rocket
1 teaspoon verjuice
1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

*or other small pasta

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve. Enjoy!
