Calamari Salad Recipe

Calamari Salad Recipe


  • squid, cleaned and cut into rings (halve tentacles, if using)

  • green bell pepper, diced

  • red bell pepper, diced

  • red onion, diced

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • lemon juice

  • fresh parsley

  • salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat.

  2. Add the calamari, stir, and turn off the heat.

  3. After one minute remove from water and place in an ice bath to chill. (Calamari may be “held” here for a couple of hours until ready to be served.)

  4. Once fully chilled, drain, place calamari on paper towels, and pat dry before dressing immediately with lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, salt and pepper.

  5. Toss and serve.
