DIRECTIONS

  • Finely dice onion, tomato and peppers.
  • Make the vinaigrette: Whisk olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper until combined.
  • Toss all ingredients in a bowl and chill for an hour before serving.
  • For a prettier salad, arrange lettuce leaves on a serving platter, top with salad and garnish with parsley sprigs and lemon wedges.
  • Note: You may substitute any seafood for the calamari--octopus sliced on the diagonal are really good, shrimp, scallops, mussels, or even a mixture of seafood.
