Thinly slice the cooked octopus. Cut the cherry tomatoes as you like. Drain the tuna.
In a bowl or container, stir together the sliced octopus and pesto.
Arrange the octopus, tuna, and tomatoes from Step 2 on a platter. Drizzle with the olive oil (optional). Enjoy.
Story Behind this Recipe
I loved the chilled pasta with genovese sauce I had at a restaurant a few years ago and started making the same dish at home. This recipe is for its sauce only. This sauce is perfect for chilled pasta as well.
Adjust the amount of the genovese sauce to your preference. Personally, I like to drizzle the salad with a little bit of olive oil.
