Mandarin Salad




  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ head iceberg lettuce torn into pieces
  • ½ head romaine lettuce torn into pieces
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 whole green onions chopped
  • 3 fresh mandarins peeled, sectioned


  • Mix all of the dressing ingredients and chill.
  • In a small pan over medium heat, cook the almonds and sugar, stirring constantly until the almonds are coated and the sugar has dissolved. Watch carefully- the almonds will burn easily. Cool, and store in an airtight container until ready to use.
  • Combine the lettuce, celery and green onions. Just before serving, add the almonds and oranges and toss with the dressing.
