Mandarin Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Wilmom

This came from some cookbook, long ago. I now forget which one, since I copy my favorite recipes to my own cookbook. (Saves me time, not having to search for it!) This salad adds a zest to any meal.

Wht a refreshing and tasty salad! I tossed in a few extra almonds, but other than that, I stuck to the recipe as written. The addition of the red pepper sauce in the dressing gave that salad a nice kick without overpowering the mild greens and sweet mandarin oranges. Thanks, Wilmom. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.
