This is my go-to salad for dinner parties, brunches, showers, etc. It's easy to make and very refreshing...everyone loves it. You can use any greens you like, I use romaine. You could probably use different varieties of vinegar as well! —2eatwellRD
For the Salad
head Romaine lettuce
can mandarin oranges, drained
For the Dressing
red wine vinegar
chopped fresh or 2 tsp dried parlsey
To make sugared almonds, sauté almonds with sugar under medium heat, stirring constantly as they start to brown. Remove from heat when all nuts are browned. This will happen fast, so don't walk away from stove! Lay out onto aluminum foil until cooled.
Chop scallions and lettuce, add them to a large bowl.
Chop celery into bite-size pieces, add to the salad bowl.
Drain mandarin oranges and add to bowl.
To make vinaigrette, combine vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, parsley and dry mustard in small bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil to blend.
Pour dressing over salad. Top salad with sugared almonds.
