Mandarin Salad

Linda James


I've made this salad with many variations. If strawberries aren't your thing, use raspberries or blueberries. You can use any type of lettuce, and any vegetables that you want to add in. It truly is delicious with many combinations. My mother taught me to make this salad dressing when I was just a kid. She always made homemade dressings, and this is my favorite. Thanks, Mom!

mandarin oranges, well drained
1 c

2 Tbsp


1Make the dressing first. Combine the Miracle Whip, mustard, vinegar, and sugar.
2Stir gently, taste to see if you want more sugar, mustard, etc., and add accordingly. Make it your own!
3While the dressing is blending its flavors, mix the salad and cucumber together. Then add the dressing a little at a time, mixing well. It may not take the whole bowl of dressing. Use your own judgment. Then gently fold in the drained oranges, pecans, and strawberrie. Enjoy!
