1145 - Mandarin Orange Salad #

(by Aunt Eileen [Knouse] Carter)

1/2 cup almond slivers
3 TBSP white sugar
1/2 head iceberg lettuce (washed and torn into bite sized pieces)
1/2 bunch Romaine lettuce (washed and torn into bite sized pieces)
1 cup chopped celery
2 green onions (chopped)
1 - 11oz. can Dole mandarin orange slices (drained)
Dressing: 1/2 tsp. salt; 1/4 tsp. pepper; 1/4 cup canola oil; 1 TBSP chopped
parsley; 1 TBSP white sugar; 2 TBSP cider vinegar

In a saucepan over low heat add 3 TBSP white sugar and almond slivers--
cook and stir until sugar melts and almonds become coated with sugar
(watch it carefully--it burns easily)--set aside to cool. In a small bowl add salt,
pepper, canola oil, chopped parsley, 1 TBSP white sugar and cider vinegar--
stir until mixed and refrigerate it until cold. In a large salad serving bowl add
lettuce, celery and chopped green onions--toss. When ready to eat add
sugared almonds and drained mandarin oranges on top of salad. Pour
dressing over the top--toss to coat.
