I didn’t have to think twice to double my portion of calamari to 4 ounces for a measly increase of 1 Point!
RECIPE FOR 2-POINT CALAMARI SALAD
4 ounces of Azuma Gourmet Calamari Salad (from Costco)
2 cups of homegrown Romaine lettuce
2 Persian cucumbers
Cut the romaine lettuce into bite sized pieces and top with calamari salad.
Add the cucumbers and red bell pepper and enjoy.
This salad doesn’t need extra salad dressing because the Azuma Calamari salad is seasoned with ginger, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil and imparts a rich flavor by itself.
This will be a “go-to” salad for a long time because it’s delicious, filling, and has an ultra low point value.
