Pantesca salad


  • Cook the potatoes in a large pot of boiling water until tender. Then drain well, set aside to cool a little and then chop into even pieces.
  • At the same time, heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and very quickly sauté the calamari until it firms up and is lightly coloured.
  • Place the potatoes, red onion, tomatoes, capers and basil in a bowl with the calamari and the cooking juices, a little salt, ground pepper and balsamic. Toss well and serve warm on a large plate (or individual ones).



  • 6 kipfler potatoes, peeled
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 calamari tubes, cleaned & sliced into fine rings
  • ½ red onion, very finely sliced
  • 1 cup assorted cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 heaped tbsp drained & rinsed capers
  • 1 good handful baby basil leaves
  • sea salt & freshly ground pepper
  • a splash of balsamic vinegar
