Mandarin Orange Salad {recipe}

I cut this salad recipe out of a magazine years ago... and it has been a family favorite ever since.  It is called "Carole Faxon's That Illinois Salad" which is such a long name for a salad, so we just call it Mandarin Orange Salad.
P.S.  I just web searched the recipe and you can find the original {here}!

Mandarin Orange Salad
1 head Romaine Lettuce, chopped
3 Green Onions, sliced
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2-4 tablespoons sugar

Stir almonds and sugar together in a small saucepan over medium heat until golden brown.  Quickly spread the almonds out on a piece of waxed paper sprayed with baking spray.  Let cool.  Once cooled break into bite size pieces.

Add lettuce, onions, oranges and candied almonds into a serving bowl.  Drizzle dressing over top and toss salad together.


Dressing:
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon dried parsley

Add ingredients into a small jar with a tight fitting lid, and shake to incorporate.
