My sister-in-law makes this wonderful salad and I finally got the recipe from her. It is so yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the salad: Chop lettuce into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Top lettuce with drained mandarin oranges and toasted slivered almonds.
  3. Slice red onion and add to salad.
  4. Toss everything together.
  5. For dressing: Mix together sugar, red wine vinegar, mustard, poppy seeds, and salt. Once all other ingredients are mixed together, add the oil and mix well.
  6. Serve salad and dressing separately to avoid a soggy, wilted result.

I made this for a wine tasting party the other night and EVERYONE loved it and wanted the recipe! Fabulous! I am going to try it again with splenda instead of sugar.

This is wonderful. I went a bit easy on the sugar with no problems. I threw in some red grapes too. Will be having this again for lunch tomorrow, can't wait.
