Calamari Salad

Calamari Salad

I love, love calamari!!  I was a teen in Naples, Italy so I ate calamari “fritte” as well as “misto”. Anyway you serve it, I love it!  I shared a story on Facebook, so I suppose I should just go ahead and share it again…my father was a sailor (enough said).   Anyway, my dad (with a nice buzz working) would take the calamari tentacles and stick them out of his nose and pretend like he was being attacked by a squid.  The Italians just loved us (actually, for some reason, they did).  Anyway, here’s my Paleo tribute to calamari!
