Ingredients

  • ¼

    cup red onion, minced

  • ½

    cup celery, chopped

  • ½

    cup roasted red peppers, chopped

  • ¼

    cup fresh parsley, minced (no stems)

  • 1

    clove garlic, sliced

  • lemons

  • tsp red wine vinegar

  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

  • 1

    lb fresh squid, tube and tentacles cleaned

Directions

Rinse squid and slice tubes into 1/2 inch rings. Leave the tentacles whole and set aside. Prepare a bowl of water with ice. In a medium bowl combine onion, garlic, celery, red peppers, parsley, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and fresh pepper. Bring a medium pot filled with water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Add calamari all at once and cook until tender yet cooked, (I test it by tasting a ring) about 45 - 60 seconds. Quickly drain when cooked and add to the ice bath until cool, 4 - 5 minutes. Combine squid with the salad and toss well. Taste for salt and add additional seasoning and lemon juice if needed. Cover and refrigerate at least an hour. Makes about 3 1/2 cups.
