Calamari Salad Recipe

A Reader Recipe: Fresh Calamari Salad

This recipe for a fresh squid salad from FitSugar reader Dara8182 proves that calamari isn't just deep-fried finger food. Dara8182 posted the calamari salad recipe in our Healthy Recipe community group.

Squid is an incredible, low-calorie, lean protein source. Most people think calamari can only be eaten fried, but it is so delicious in a variety of ways that are far healthier. This salad combines lots of fresh veggies, herbs, and lemon with calamari for a lean and filling meal. It is a great appetizer or main dish and looks and tastes like Summer! Try it this weekend.
