Mmmm, this is a nummy salad and a great way to use up a few of those leftover Christmas mandarins! I changed the dressing a bit by adding a few slices of fresh ginger and running it through the blender.

This is a light and refreshing spring salad indeed !!!! I had this as my dinner this evening and can't wait to take the leftovers to work for lunch tomorrow !! I will make this a standard at my house from now on . I also think this would be a great potluck dish if you pack all the ingredients seperatley and then toss this on site . How lovely , Thank You !

I'm surprised that I have not reviewed this recipe before. It literally turned me into someone who regularly eats salads. It's nice to try out new food that is green! The almonds add a really nice touch, and the sugar doesn't make the overall flavor too sweet. I've played around with some of the ingredients, but usually make it as is. The other day, I realized that I didn't have any spinach. I used mixed greens and threw in some leftover pineapple. No matter what I seem to do, I end up devouring the bowl. I'd highly recommend this recipe!

Great salad that goes together easily and quickly. I lower the sugar amount slightly. Thanks for sharing!

This recipe was great. I used green onions but I would use red onion next time for color. I made a few changes because I wanted a healthier salad, instead of 1/4 cup sugar i used about 1/5 cup of agave syrup in the dressing and for the almonds I used 3 tablespoons of brown rice syrup...they were hard as a rock so I chopped them. Overall a really nice flavor.

Delicious! Only changes were to add 1 Tablespoon sweet chili sauce to the dressing. I used red onion and fresh (to use up) orange segments.

I have been making something very similar I got from the first or second TOH cookbook. I usually double the almonds because my husband, son and I nibble until there's none left for the salad! I also prefer to leave out the celery and sometimes add avocado if I have it. Very very good! Thanks fos posting.
