Mandarin Orange Salad recipe

This amazing recipe I founded at and I love it.  Every time I make it I think it changes just a touch, but those two ingredients remain the same. We had this for dinner last night without adding any additional protein, give it a try!


Ingredients for the salad:
Your preferred lettuce - I use dark greens or spinach
1 (15 ounce) can of mandarin oranges
1/2 cup of slivered almonds
Scant 3/4 cup of sugar (which means a little less than)
4 scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons of cilantro, minced

Ingredients for the dressing:

1/4 cup of vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of vinegar
2 tablespoons of sugar
Pinch of salt and pepper
A few dashes of tobasco sauce
