Foodie Fridays!

Hey all!

I was in Kansas City for Christmas this year and my Aunt made this salad that was one of the best salads I have ever had. If you love crunchy and vinegary you will love it!

Mandarin Orange Almond Salad

1/2 Head iceberg lettuce

1/2 Head romaine lettuce

2 (8oz) cans mandarin oranges, drained

2 cups sliced celery

2 Tbsp. minched parsley

4 green onions, sliced; including some tops

1 cup slivered almonds


1 t salt

1/4 cup sugar

dash tobasco

dash lemon pepper

1/4 c cider vinegar

1/2 c wesson oil

Wash and prep lettuce. Combine oranges, celery, parsley and green onions: chill. Put sugar in heavy skillet: add the almonds and stir constantly over low heat until caramelized. Turn out on foil: cool and break into small pieces. Combine dressing ingredients: toss and serve.

Enjoy! I can't wait to make it!

ps- some dried cranberries look and taste nice
