Mandarin Almond Salad

Michelle (Chad's Mom) is a phenomenal cook! She tends to whip up these amazing meals for the family get togethers that I find myself thinking about for days. This salad is a go-to of mine now as it really compliments a variety of meals (fish, meat, or veggie). Now, if I could only get the family recipe for orange rolls, I'd be set! Enjoy friends!

Mandarin Almond Salad
from Michelle Bunn's kitchen
- 1 head of lettuce (I used a mix of butter lettuce and romaine)
- 2 stalks celery sliced
- 2 green onions chopped
- 1 can mandarin oranges drained
- 2 tbsp. parsley chopped
- 1 small package slivered almonds (combine almonds in non-stick pan with 2 tbsp. sugar and stir over low heat until sugar melts and browns). Let cool and break up pieces to put on top of salad.

- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. white vinegar
- 1/4 cup salad oil
- dash of tabasco
- fresh pepper

Combine and toss with salad mixture, garnish with almonds!
