Calamari and Watermelon Salad Recipe by Rocco Dispirito (Salad Recipe Ideas)

Calamari and Watermelon Salad Recipe

See More Salad Recipe Ideas HereAdapted from a calamari recipe by James Beard Award winning chef, Rocco Dispirito, this is definitely not your run of the mill salad recipe.

Summer may not be here forever, but the flavor of the season will linger on when you serve the sweet and savory watermelon salad below to your friends and family.
