Asian Calamari Salad

This salad is really more of a concept than a strict recipe - it's meant to be played with! I've included the approximate amounts that I used to make two large salads to get you started, but if you love cucumber, go ahead and add more. Don't like carrot as much? Go a little lighter with them.
