Mandarin Orange Bean Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Atiekay

This gem was found while browsing through my great-grandma's recipe box. I slightly reduce the sugar when I make it and sometimes add toasted slivered almonds. Best if made a day before, but not necessary to do so.

Nice, bright and tasty salad! A bit unusual for me with the oranges and beans but the dressing really brought it all together. I only made half of the dressing and it was plenty. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2012
