    2. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil and blanch the prepared squid pieces for 1 minute. Drain the squid and plunge it into cold water to stop the cooking. This is the most important step in this salad! Do not overcook the squid. Drain the squid again and set aside.

    3. Mix together the ingredients for the dressing. Toss with the squid pieces and place on a bed of lettuce leaves. Garnish with the cucumber slices and lime wedges. Chill before serving.

        ON CLEANING SQUID. Buy frozen or fresh squid that are about 5 to 6 inches long. Pull off the head and set aside. Squeeze out the filling from the tube and discard. Rinse the tube and remove the clear plastic-like backbone of the creature. You can save the tentacles, but not the head, for other dishes.
