Calamari sounds more appetizing than squid. Wonderful salad.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Add the calamari slices to the boiling water, and stir. Allow the calamari to cook for 1 minute over high heat. Remove immediately, drain, and chill in an ice-water bath.
  2. To Prepare The Southwestern Dressing: Heat the olive oil and minced garlic over a low flame in a large sauté pan. Cook the garlic slowly for 3 minutes, until it is golden brown; then cool the garlic. Add the jalapeño, sherry vinegar, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, paprika, hot pepper sauce, and salt and pepper.
  3. To Prepare The Salad: When the calamari is chilled, drain it well and transfer to large salad bowl. Combine the calamari, red pepper, onion, black beans, cilantro and dressing.
