Since this issue is focused on good health, I am sharing one of my favorite salad recipes. I like to serve this when entertaining. It’s from the Minnesota with Love cookbook. I use all romaine lettuce because it’s what I prefer and I add 1/2 tsp of poppy seeds to the dressing. So healthy eating! I hope you enjoy this recipe!
Legendary Mandarin Salad:
1/2 cup sliced almonds
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 head iceberg lettuce
1/2 head romaine lettuce
1 cup chopped celery
2 whole green onions. sliced thin
1-11 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 tsp salt
Dash of pepper
1/4 cup olive oil or other vegetable oil
1-2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp vinegar
Dash of Tabasco sauce
In a small pan, cook almonds and sugar, stirring until almonds are coated and sugar dissolved; spread out on tinfoil and cool. Mix lettuces, celery and onions in salad bowl; refrigerate. Mix all dressing ingredients together, whisk or shake in small jar and chill. Just before serving, add almonds and oranges to lettuce, toss with dressing.
Have a great week and stay warm! Hopefully it will warm up in a few weeks!
