Mandarin Salad by Miz Crocker
1/4 C sliced almonds
1T + 1 tsp sugar
1/4 head lettuce
1/4 bunch romaine
1 C celery chopped
2 green onions thinly sliced
11 oz can mandarin oranges, packed in juice
Sweet and Sour dressing;
1/2 C oil
4 T sugar
4 T vinegar
2 T snipped parsley
1 tsp salt
Cook almonds and sugar over low heat, stir until sugar is melted. Careful not to burn. Cool and break the almonds apart. Set aside.
Place lettuce/romaine celery and onions in a plastic bag. Pour in dressing and orange segments and shake, shake, shake,....shake, shake, shake,...shake your salad,
shake your salad, yeah.
Add almonds. Serve.
I'll bet most of you have had that salad...a long time ago and forgot how good it is! Right?
I'll share the Red Velvet cake recipe soon. If I get some recipes to post I'll add my cake to the list. If I don't get any recipes to share, I give you the cake recipe anyway :o)
I'll be here...shaking my salad and singing with KC and the Sunshine band...
Trying to keep my spirits up...in snowy, cold, Wisconsin.
