Calamari Salad

Calamari Salad | The Paleo Diet

We came across a delicious summer recipe on the back of a package of cooked, sliced calamari. With just a few modifications, we were able to substitute the necessary ingredients to make it pure Paleo. Calamari Salad is the perfect fresh dish to share on a warm evening with friends!


Serves 4

  • 1 lb wild-caught sliced squid tentacles, precooked
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. white vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 sliced red or yellow pepper
  • 4 cups mixed green lettuce
  • 1 bunch cilantro leaves
  • 10 low sodium olives of your choice, rinsed and sliced
  • 1 fresh avocado
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 large tomatoes


1. Combine calamari with olive oil, one teaspoon white vinegar and sliced pepper and set aside in serving bowl.

2. Toss together mixed greens and cilantro and spread evenly on large serving platter.

3. Add remaining ingredients to lettuce mixture.

4. When ready to eat, scoop squid mixture onto greens and toss together.

All the Best,

    I want to start the Paleo diet but i am a chronic hi blood, hi sugar and hi cholesterol sufferer. I am on meds. How will the diet affect me??

    • Hi, Anusha. I think the Paleo Diet is really good for you, but maybe you’ll have to make some changes in the diet because of your diseases. Before doing anything, consult your physician and talk to him about the Paleo Diet.

      I hope you’re fine. Cheers! :)
