I grew up back East, and at every mall there was this fantastic little french restaurant called the Magic Pan, they specialized in crepes. One of my favorite things at the Magic Pan was this MANDARIN SALAD.. They actually called it orange almond salad. Well.., I have the EXACT recipe here, I have been making it for years, everyone loves it! Always a HUGE hit.. I think what makes it is the simple, homemade dressing..
canned mandarin segments, drained (make sure they are sweetened, the unsweetened are too bitter!)
red pepper sauce (hot sauce)
SHAKE ALL SALAD DRESSING INGREDIENTS IN TIGHTLY COVERED CONTAINER; REFRIGERATE
How To Make mandarin salad
In a Large bowl, add lettuce first, sprinkle green onions on top, slivered almonds, and drained mandarin oranges, cover with plastic wrap.
Minutes before serving the salad, shake refrigerated salad dressing well (the color will be pinkish or light red) Pour over salad, toss evenly with tongs.. Serve! Enjoy!
HINT: The colder the salad dressing and mandarin oranges, the better tasting the salad is! I usually make the salad dressing in the morning, then refrigerate it. I put the mandarin oranges in the can right in the refrigerator over night! People beg me for this simple recipe all the time and they ask me to bring this salad to potlucks constantly..
HOPE YOU LIKE THIS RECIPE AS MUCH AS MY FAMILY & FRIENDS DO!
