Manadrin Orange Salad

So sorry for the really long hiatus. It is amazing how important things, like blogging recipes, can get away from you. I kind of got in a rut these last couple of weeks and have cooked the same old things each week. However, he is a yummy (I mean YUMMY) salad that my aunt Jackie taught me how to make. It has a couple of steps, so pay attention!

Ingredients for Salad:
Mix different kinds of lettuce with
1 cup finely chopped celery
2 green onions, chopped
1 small can mandarin oranges; drained very, very well

Ingredients for Dressing:
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon parsley
2 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon white vinegar
Dash of Tabasco

Also, grab a 1/2 cup of sliced almonds and 3 tbsp of sugar.

Place in a pot on medium heat and stir almonds and sugar constantly until almonds are coated well with sugar. Place in an airtight container and place in refrigerator. *I usually double this part
Then toss all salad ingredients together. Top with almonds and dressing. Eat, enjoy, and don't feel too guilty!!
