    6. 6

      P.S.I always double the amount of almonds because they really add a wonderful flavour to the salad-- and because some mysteriously disappear before they make it to the salad!

      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.

      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!
