Italian Squid Salad Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 - 6


  • 1 pound squid (calamari)
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed oregano
  • 1/2 cup Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Fresh-ground pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges, to serve
How to cook Italian Squid Salad:
  • Clean the squid by pulling off the head and rinsing out the body tube that remains. Remove the cuttlebone. Cut the squid into little circles.
  • You may also use the head if you remove the eyes with a small paring knife, and remove the beak in between the legs by just pinching it out.
  • Wash the squid pieces, and drop them into boiling water. Squid will be done when the edges curl or when the water resumes boiling. Drain immediately.
  • Place in a salad bowl with the celery, yellow onion, olive oil, wine vinegar, oregano, parsley and pepper. Toss, and chill for about 2 hours before serving.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
