Mandarin Orange Salad

Tara Waites


My church has their annual board meeting every February and every February I'm asked to make this salad for them. I love this salad. Some people add chicken. Also, another salad dressing that goes great with this salad is the Pear Gorgonzola salad dressing by Litehouse.

  1. In a large bowl tear the romaine lettuce and incorporate with the spring mix.
  2. Drain and dry the mandarin oranges. Take all the other ingredients and add to the salad.
  3. Toss the salad and serve with your favorite citrus vinaigrette. I use the lemon vinaigrette on my recipe for the bacon romaine salad.
