This is one of my favorite salads. It is refreshingly different than your typical salad.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A sweet departure, indeed! This is a great addition to any summer meal. The recipe doesn't make a whole lot of dressing, so I would recommend at least doubling it... it's that good.

Ingredients

1 c
sliced almonds
4 Tbsp
sugar
3 bunch
romaine lettuce head
2
green onions
1 c
celery, sliced
1 can(s)
mandarin oranges, drained

DRESSING

1/2 tsp
salt
dash
pepper
1/4 c
vegetable oil
2 Tbsp
vinegar
2 Tbsp
sugar
1 Tbsp
parsley, chopped

Step-By-Step

1Mix all dressing ingredients together and chill in refrigerator. In small pan over medium heat cook almonds and sugar, stirring constantly, until almonds are coated and sugar is dissolved. Watch carefully as they burn easily! The almonds should be just a little brown.
2Mix lettuce, celery and onion. Just before serving, add oranges and almonds. Toss with dressing.
