What Is Your Most Elegant Yet Inexpensive Homemade Dish?

Chinon00 | Jan 4, 2007 02:16 AM

One of mine has got to be octopus salad:

1 can of ready to eat Goya octopus in olive oil
1 bunch of arugula
1 potato boiled and cubed
1 dozen whole olives (calamata)
1 tomato diced (plum)
1 tbsp capers
chopped parsley
extra virgin olive oil
lemon juice
caper juice
1 large garlic clove minced
salt and pepper

Combine ingredients adding salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice to taste. Serve on bone white dinner plates with Portuguese roll sliced on the bias and an assertive high acid (inexpensive) white wine. Serves two.
