      Oops, this is one I forgot to review during the Christmas rush. I apologise. A lovely salad!! I tweaked it somewhat to turn it into a starter -- I used sliced cucumber and left out the pepper flakes, and also, I used raw tomato. For appearance, I put it in lettuce leaves of different colours. Hope you don't mind. Also, I had very few capers left, so they got lost a bit, something I should have seen when taking the photograph, but didn't. It's hot here, it's high summer, and this salad is definitely on the menu again! One hint: calamari rings, stirred in hot oil, cooks in just about 30 seconds, until opaque white. So I shortened your cooking time for the rings considerably. A great combo of flavours you have here, and I've bought two bottles of capers!! Thank you!
