I know many people dislike squid, but if you like it, this salad is for you. It's very fresh and light, yet filling. Not like the mayo-based seafood salads. I made this using the squid rings only. I didn't think the tentacles would be attractive in the salad. I opted to use the salt (only 1 tbsp) over the fish sauce, just to keep the dressing from being too heavy. I made the squid mixture about 2 hours ahead of time so flavors could meld. The fresh cilantrp is a must! Thanx for posting!
