    This is a not your run-of-the-mill salad. Very flavorful and refreshing and the calamari is a scrumptious addition! Posted for Zaar World Tour II '06

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak 20 wooden skewers in water for about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Rinse the calamari tubes and pat dry.
    3. 3
      Split the bodies from top to bottom so you have 2 triangular pieces.
    4. 4
      Thread a soaked skewer through the length of each piece. Put the skewers on a platter and set aside.
    5. 5
      To make the vinaigrette, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, dried and fresh oregano, thyme and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Pour 1/2 of the vinaigrette over the calamari; set the other 1/2 aside while you make the salad.
    7. 7
      In a large bowl, add the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, cheese, olives, and romaine.
    8. 8
      Pour the remaining vinaigrette over the salad and toss to combine. Let marinate while you grill the calamari.
    9. 9
      Heat the grill or a grill pan and oil it lightly.
    10. 10
      Grill the calamari for 2 minutes on each side, no longer or they will be tough.
    11. 11
      To serve, put the salad onto a large platter and top it with the calamari skewers.
    12. 12
      Garnish with fresh oregano leaves and lemon wedges.

      For some reason, we just didn't love this. I felt like the dressing needed to sit for a few hours for the flavors to develop - even with all of that garlic and the fresh herbs it was still bland. And even though I followed the directions with the calamari, they were curled when taken off the skewers. I also didn't care for the calamari after being marinated - I think I would have preferred to just skip that step. Glad I finally made it though, as it has been on my to do list for a while now!
