Grilled Calamari and Fingerling Potato Salad

Recipe from

Coastal Living


3 pounds small fingerling potatoes
3 tablespoons sea salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1 pound frozen cleaned calamari (tubes and tentacles), thawed and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
4 cups torn dandelion greens or curly endive


Place potatoes in Dutch oven; add water to cover and 3 tablespoons sea salt. Boil potatoes until tender; drain and cool. Cover and chill several hours or overnight.

Combine garlic and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; add calamari. Cover and chill 2 hours or overnight. Sprinkle calamari with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and black pepper.

Grill calamari over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) for 3 minutes on each side or until opaque. Cut tubes into rings; leave tentacles whole.

Combine potatoes, calamari, parsley, and 1/2 cup Red Wine Vinaigrette in a large bowl. Combine remaining vinaigrette and dandelion greens in a large bowl; toss to coat. Serve potato salad over dressed greens.
