This was a tasty light salad with a little sweet from the oranges and a crunch from the almonds. I put chicken salad on lettuce and topped with orange segments and sprinkled with almonds, rather than mixing them with the chicken. It is pretty enough for a bridal or ladies luncheon. Next time I may add a few red grape halves for color and an extra little sweet.
