Twitter-Size Recipes: Jen Biesty's Squid and Fingerling Potato Salad

If you think you recognize the executive chef of Scala's Bistro (432 Powell at Post) wihtout ever having eaten there, it's because Jen Biesty competed on the fourth season of Bravo's Top Chef in 2008, where she cooked meals inspired by penguins and the film Il Postino. SFoodie challenged Biesty to create a recipe the length of a Twitter message; she responded with a squid salad in two tasty tweets:
