Carmelized Almond Salad Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1/2 head Lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 can drained Mandarin oranges (11 ounce can)
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Dressing
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
Directions
Prepare and combine first 5 ingredients. In non-stick pan, heat 2 T. sugar to slightly brown, toss slivered almonds onto caramelizing sugar and keep tossing til brown. Set aside on buttered or Pam-sprayed surface to cool. Keep separate for garnish at time of serving. Prepare dressing and toss into salad at time of serving, garnish with caramelized almonds.

A good idea to keep all three parts separate until time to serve so that ingredients stay crisp and caramelized almonds (such a treat) don't get soggy from the dressing. Great with stir-fry main dishes.
