I scored the recipe for this great salad that was brought to a potluck. This is, for me, the best salad I have ever tasted. I'm going to be making it for my extended family for Christmas Eve.
- 4 cups mixed greens
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup chopped cucumber
- 1⁄4 cup mandarin orange section, drained
- 1⁄4 cup pecans
- 1⁄2 cup grated swiss cheese or 1⁄2 cup mozzarella cheese
- Wash and drain the mixed greens.
- Toss all the ingredients together in a pretty salad bowl.
- Serve with ranch dressing.
I made this as posted but added a little balsamic viniagrette to the ranch dressing and used an english cucumber in place of a regular cuke. Very good and it will be made again! Made this for the Chef Dee cook-a-thon 7/2008.
This is an excellent salad!!! Not only does it make a very pretty looking salad but the flavors are right on. We loved the sweetness from the mandarin oranges and the crunch of the pecan. Hubby topped his salad with the Ranch Dressing and I drizzeled the juice from the mandarin oranges over mine. Both ways were fabulous. Thanks for sharing this great salad, Chef Dee.
