Fast & Easy Recipe For Marinated Squid Salad With Dried Tomatoes

Since they're not the healthiest of weeknight options, I'm going to curb my seafood cravings with a tangy salad made by tossing together leftover calamari, dried tomatoes, and crisp vegetables. Add in a citrus-tinged tarragon vinaigrette, and transport yourself to the beach. Turn to a satisfying and healthy seafood alternative when you read more.
