Mandarin Orange Salad Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. sliced almonds
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. celery diced
  • 1 11 oz. can mandarin oranges drained
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce chopped
  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce chopped
  • 2 whole green onions diced

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. ground pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 dash Tobasco sauce (or other hot sauce)


  • In a small pan over medium heat, heat almonds and sugar, stirring constantly until almonds are coated and sugar is dissolved. Watch carefully!! They will burn easily!
  •  Set almonds aside to cool on a piece of parchment paper and then store in an airtight container until ready to mix with salad.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients together. I use a jar so that I can shake it all together and store in the refrigerator.
  • Dice the celery and green onions and chop the romaine and iceberg lettuces.
  • Throw everything except the oranges, almonds and dressing into a bowl and mix together. Just before serving, add almonds and oranges and drizzle with dressing. Toss to coat and serve!
