It’s always great, to think of ways you could incorporate our Gourmet Grocery Cy products into your life!
It’s even greater, when you have something to suggest!
This is a throwback, when Yiota Koufalidou shared her favorite traditional potato salad recipe, on her blog (Read the original article in Greek here.)

Yiota incorporated our products in her kitchen, and particularly in a special edition of the Greek traditional potato salad, containing octopus, and featuring our Mani Blauel olives and olive oil. The original article is
in Greek; we translated it in English for all of you who don’t speak the language, and incorporated some more of our products in it! It is an all-season Mediterranean plate, extremely delicious, and the best for a fasting period!

What you need:

  • Small Potatoes (as many as you want)
  • Octopus (as much as you want)
  • Olives without pits (Try our Mani Blauel ones:
  • 1 Cup of tea Red dry wine (
  • 1 Green pepper
  • Parsley
  • Anise
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • Fresh onions
  • Salt & Pepper

For the dressing:

  • Olive oil (Try our Mani Blauel one coming in 3 different flavors:
  • Capers (optional)
  • Pepper

How to do it:

  • Boil the octopus with some salt in a neat casserole, for 3-4 minutes
  • Pour it with the wine and some water, cover it, and let it boil for about 25-30 minutes
  • After it has cooled, cut the octopus in small pieces
  • Wash the potatoes and cut them in half
  • Boil the potatoes in salted water for 30 minutes
  • Strain the potatoes, and let them cool
  • In a bowl, whisk the dressing’s ingredients
  • Put the cubed potatoes in a large bowl, and add the chopped octopus
  • Pour in the vegetables finely chopped, and the dressing
  • Sprinkle some pepper, and BON APETIT!
    *Serve it with some traditional roasted bread!
