Secret Mandarin Orange Salad
- 1/4 c
- 1/4 c
- 1/2 tsp
- dijon mustard
- 1 tsp
- 1 dash(es)
- 2-3 dash(es)
- tabasco sauce
- 1/2 c
- vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced dry parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried minced onion
Pour into a storage container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
1 cup sliced almonds
5 rounded tablespoons sugar
In a skillet, cook almonds and sugar over low heat, stirring constantly until sugar is melted and almonds are brown and sugar coated. Turn out onto a plate to cool and break apart.
8 cups of lettuce greens (Spring greens, romaine, iceberg) torn into bite size pieces
1/2 cup chopped celery
4 green onions, sliced thin, (I like only the green part)
2 small cans mandarin oranges, drain and reserve juice for the avocado
1 large or 2 small avocadoes, chopped into small chunks and put in the reserved juice (keeps avocado from turning brown)
2 kiwi's, peeled and sliced
Toss together with just enough of the dressing to coat the lettuce. Do not drown the greens. Garnish with the caramelized almonds.
