Top Review by Just Call Me Martha

Excellent Salad! It's a little bit out of the ordinary and it's very appealing to the eye. I have made this many times and have substituted both romaine and/or baby spinach with excellent results. It's great to take to a pot luck as well - just throw all the greens into a plastic bag and just before serving, toss in the almonds, mandarins and dressing. Give the bag a good shake and you're good to go. Thanks MizzNezz!
