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 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
