3.Grill the calamari pieces for 1 minute each side until tender and grill marks appear. Set aside loosely covered with foil to keep warm. Cut corn kernels from cobs.
4.In a large serving bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes, mango, cucumber and onion. Add the calamari and corn, tossing well.
5.For the Bloody Mary dressing: In a small blender or food processor, combine all ingredients until smooth.
