A slightly sweet dressing with the crunchiness of sugared almonds makes this an outstanding salad! Recipe is requested every time it is served. Found recipe in Woman's Day magazine in 1995.

  1. Shake first 6 dressing ingredients in a jar and refrigerate.
  2. Stir almonds and sugar in a small pan over medium heat until sugar melts and starts to caramelize and almonds are very lightly toasted.

It's sweet, it's crunchy, it's like no other salad I've had. Delicious! The red onion, almonds, and oranges make this such a pretty salad. Thanks!

Outstanding Salad! Simple with great light flavors that mix together so....well. I didn't have any almonds so I sugared chopped pecans and they were great. Can't wait to try this out again on guests next time.
