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

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Mandarin Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix 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.
