Summer of Salad – Turkey Dog Octopus

1 grilled turkey dog

Mixed greens

5 tomato slices for an octopus’s garden

Dijon mustard

Olive oil

White wine vinegar

A healthy portion of whimsy

I had a leftover hot dog from yesterday’s barbecue and I was inspired.  Cutting the octopus out was easy, I just used scissors to cut it in half then snipped it into quarters and snipped the quarters in half without cutting too far up to the top (maybe 2/3).  I sliced up the rest of the dog and sprinkled it around the salad.  The mustard was The Real Ale Stone Ground Mustard made by the Atlantic Brewing Company.
