Octopus and healthy mayo salad, a traditional dish from Andalucia in Spain.
If you have ever been to Andalucia I am you tasted gazpacho or salmorejo, this octopus salad might not be as famous but I can ensure you it is delicious.
Potatoes, octopus and paprika are the main ingredients so nothing can go wrong with that. Also, instead of using regular mayo my proposal is to use healthy mayonnaise. The flavour is the same but it is easier and lighter to eat.
Hope you like it!
