Calamari-Mango Salad

Squid doesn't deserve its reputation for being tough or rubbery. It yields a delicate, tender texture if cooked for either a very short or a very long period of time.

Yield: Makes 3 1/2 cups

  • 1 pound fresh or frozen squid, thawed and drained
  • 2 ripe mangoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Toasted baguette slices


  1. Cut squid tubes into rings. Blanch in boiling water to cover 30 seconds or until opaque. (Water doesn't have to return to a rolling boil.) Don't overcook or squid will become tough. Plunge in ice water to chill. Drain.
  2. Combine squid, mangoes, and lime juice in a small bowl.
  3. Whisk together mustard, vinegar, and olive oil. Stir in cilantro and next 3 ingredients. Fold in squid mixture.
  4. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Top baguette slices with salad, using a slotted spoon.
