How to Make Citrus Almond Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Coat the almonds in butter and toast until brown. Watch them closely. They will overcook and burn quickly. The rule is if you smell them, they are overcooked.
  3. Tear the lettuce into bite-sized pieces in a salad bowl.
  4. Mix in the mandarin oranges and the almonds.
  5. Mix until coated. Chill in the refrigerator for a little while before serving.
