Another Mandarin Almond Salad. Only slightly different from the one Inez posted. Can't go wrong with either one. This is good stuff!

Thanks Ginny for a great recipe. I served this to company and they finished off the bowl. The only thing I omitted was the red pepper flakes. This was so delicious, I can't wait to make it again.

- 1⁄2 cup sliced almonds

- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- fresh ground black pepper
- In a large bowl, combine the Romaine, drained oranges, and chopped onions.
