garlic, peeled and minced

salt and pepper to taste
squid, cleaned and sliced into rounds
1 (2.25 ounce) can
pitted black olives
Nice recipe and great as an appetizer. I added cut up shrimp to mine. I steamed the calamari about 7-9 mins. Steaming is a gentler way of cooking and it makes it harder to overcook, which you don't want to do. Put some fresh bay leaves and the peel of 2 lemons in the water your steaming over. Cover and cook for several minutes, stirring often. Dress the calamari when it's still hot then chill so flavors meld. Remove from fridge alittle before you eat it and re-toss in dressing.
Fixed as discribed. This was just not good. Sorry.
Yummy...Loved it!! I saut'eed the calamari in olive oil with the garlic.
Then tossed with cayenne,red pepper flakes, fresh basil and the lemon in the pan while cooling.this recipe needs salt and peper. The celery and black olives were great,serve over some kind of green.Your guests
This was excellent. I only made a couple of changes. I used 2 lbs of squid instead of 3. I added about a quarter of a red onion, chopped finely and I also added a small portion of shredded napa cabbage. I added the napa cabbage because that is what one of our local restaurants does with their calamari salad. I would highly recommend this recipe!
Healthy and delicious - thanks, Claire!
I am not a big fan of squid but I thought this recipes was alright. However, my husband (a seafood fanatic) loves this recipe especially on top of a green salad.
This is a delicious salad. We took the advice of others and steamed the calamari. I think next time we make it, I may try to roast the calamari or grill it.
Very good. I made this as one of the appetizers for Christmas Eve. A keeper.
