I have not had time to post lately with my schedule being so hectic, but always find the time for the Creative Cooking Crew challenges. July’s challenge: Taco, make it your own…take it someplace it’s never been.
I decided to take my taco to Greece. If you know me, you know my love of Mediterranean food. Octopus being my favorite. I can have it broiled, boiled, grilled, in salads and now in a taco.
Tortillas used are from a friend’s recipe. Sonia of La Piña en la Cocina is a wonderful chef and quite knowledgeable of her Mexican heritage and food. Please do visit her blog, I promise mouth-watering recipes.
After grilling the octopus I dressed it with red wine vinegar, olive oil and dried Greek oregano. I used romaine lettuce, kalamata olives, fresh dill, tomatoes, cucumber ribbons and feta cheese. Heat up those tortillas as the recipe indicates and just enjoy the moment.
