    Wilmom's Note:

    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.

      YUMMY! This was a definite crowd pleaser at our luncheon! I used an entire head of ice berg lettuce and a half bunch of romaine. Next time I'll either double the amount of oranges or just slice each one in half to better disperse them throughout the salad. Loved the dressing and the almonds, too. I"m curious to try cashews with it. Will DEFINITELY make this again!
