DIRECTIONS

  • Soak 20 wooden skewers in water for about 20 minutes.
  • Rinse the calamari tubes and pat dry.
  • Split the bodies from top to bottom so you have 2 triangular pieces.
  • Thread a soaked skewer through the length of each piece. Put the skewers on a platter and set aside.
  • To make the vinaigrette, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, dried and fresh oregano, thyme and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour 1/2 of the vinaigrette over the calamari; set the other 1/2 aside while you make the salad.
  • In a large bowl, add the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, cheese, olives, and romaine.
  • Pour the remaining vinaigrette over the salad and toss to combine. Let marinate while you grill the calamari.
  • Heat the grill or a grill pan and oil it lightly.
  • Grill the calamari for 2 minutes on each side, no longer or they will be tough.
  • To serve, put the salad onto a large platter and top it with the calamari skewers.
  • Garnish with fresh oregano leaves and lemon wedges.
