Mandarin Orange Salad

Since I'm making this wonderful salad for our Sunday super tonight, I thought that I would hop onto the computer and share it with you also. This salad came from my daughter who is a great cook and luckily for me she will also share her recipes. Here in the family we call this the "Batty Salad", because that is her husbands Family name and her wonderful mother-in-law shared this salad with her! That's how the all those recipes goes around and around...


Large head of Romain Lettuce, washed and cut
4 green onions, sliced thin
1 can Mandarin Oranges, drained
1/3 C of sugar...I use Splenda
1 t. salt
1 t. celery seed
1 t. dry mustard
1/2 C apple cider vinegar
1 C Canola Oil
1 C sliced almonds, toasted

Mix the dressing and Chill. Just before eating mix the lettuce, onions, almonds and Mandarin oranges and add your dressing.

This salad is so great, every time I make it for someone that hasn't had it, they want the recipe and I wanted to share it with you, my new friends. Enjoy!

I'm so glad you are back. This salad sounds yummy. I am back to trying to lose some weight and I need to get back into salads. I hope you are doing good and that your brother is continuing to do good. I ate so much food when I went on my trip to Indiana that I gained more weight. To me, the food tastes better up there. I guess it is psychological, but it has always tasted better. When we go back next year I hope to have lost a good bit.
