Ingredients

Sugared Almonds

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 teaspoons sugar

Sweet-Sour Dressing

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white or cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • Dash red pepper sauce

Salad

  • 1/2 small head lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces (3 cups)
  • 1/2 bunch romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces (3 cups)
  • 2 medium celery stalks, chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 medium green onions, thinly sliced (2 tablespoons)
  • 1 can (11 oz) mandarin orange segments, drained

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, cook almonds and 4 teaspoons sugar over low heat about 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until sugar is melted and almonds are coated; cool and break apart.
  • 2
    In tightly covered container, shake all dressing ingredients. Refrigerate until serving time.
  • 3
    In large bowl, toss salad ingredients, dressing and almonds. Serve immediately.

  • Six cups of any combination of salad greens can be used instead of the head lettuce and romaine.
  • Be sure to tear the greens by hand instead of chopping with a knife. A chemical reaction between the greens and the metal knife will cause the edges of the greens to brown.
  • For Crunchy Chicken Mandarin Salad, make salad as directed. Divide among 6 individual serving plates. Top each serving with a grilled boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced (warm or cold). Sprinkle each salad with 2 tablespoons wide or regular chow mein noodles.
