We love salads. Every week like clock work we have salads on Tuesday night alongside a nice chunk of buttery moist bread and our favorite dressing. Sometimes the word salad can bring tension to a family especially one with small kids or if you have a certain husband (not mentioning any names:) that needs MEAT to survive. Thankfully, I have
rewired convinced my husband with my endless supply of flavorful and unique salad creations that not all salads are boring and tasteless .
This past week I brought home the gold (hence the anticipation of the Olympic games)and used my freshly purchased calamari rings to liven up crispy ice-burg lettuce, creamy wasabi orange vinaigrette and hints of romano cheese. The calamari were bathed in a nice bath of buttermilk and srichacha sauce ( just because I love using buttermilk when frying) then dredged in a bubbly generous amount of tempura batter made with ice cold seltzer and freshly cracked sea salt and black pepper. The outcome was incredible, the seltzer keeps the batter from getting soggy, leaving you with an outrageously crispy golden crust. The crispy calamari and crispy ice-burg lettuce were a match made in heaven and the vinaigrette added the perfect sweetness with hints of orange and spicy wasabi. Don’t let the taste of summer pass you by- make this salad- you deserve it!
