Spicy Calamari and Green Apple Salad...

Honestly, I have a hard time writing this post. I made this dish about two weeks ago but I had no ideas what to write about it. I quickly mixed up this dish for my lunch one day as I was so hungry and didn’t really think much about adding anything else into it. This dish, if you looked at the ingredients, was so simple, probably too simple. There were only 3 main ingredients for the salad and a simple dressing, and yet, who’d knew calamari and Green smith apple were so good together like a happy married couples. It was so minty-tasty and delish.

I bet it will taste good with shrimp, crab, and other seafood as well. And add some roasted peanuts, walnuts, or almonds for some crunchy – that would be awesome! 

What you need:   for 1 or 2

1 1/2 cup calamari rings, cooked
1 medium Green smith apple, sliced into matchsticks
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced

The dressing:
1 tbsp. Asian chili garlic sauce
2-3 tbsp. fish sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tsp. sugar
1-2 tbsp. mint leaves, chiffonaded

How to:

- If your calamari rings are uncooked, cook them in boiling water for 3-5 minutes but don’t overcooked or they will become rubbery.
- Add cooked calamari, green apple and red onion in a medium mixing bowl and set aside.
- Whisk together all of the dressing ingredients until the sugar is dissolved – adjust the flavors to your own taste.
- Gently toss the dressing into the prepared salad to combine well and serve immediately.
