In a food processor, add all ingredients and process until mixture is smooth and creamy. Set aioli aside.

Salad
3 cups mixed salad greens
3 cups arugula leaves
1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes marinated in extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
Unrefined sea salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

In a large serving bowl, add the salad greens, arugula, tomatoes, olives, and red onion. Gently toss salad ingredients,
season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

Calamari
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
11/4 pounds calamari tubes, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-wide rings, cleaned and patted dry
Unrefined sea salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add calamari and pan-fry in a single layer, without tossing, until the calamari are golden on the bottom, about 3â€"4 minutes.

Salad Assembly
When the calamari are just about cooked, stir in the aioli. Cook calamari for an additional minute. Pour the warm calamari and aioli mixture on top of the salad ingredients. Season with more salt and pepper. Add the croutons. Let the salad sit for 4â€"5 minutes to slightly wilt the greens. Serve family style.
