This recipe, suprisingly easy, is a great hit for those who like fruit and nuts in a salad. It's wonderfully light, slightly tangy, and a flexible recipe -- you can easily add cooked chicken to it and make it a dinner salad.

Wow! And easy, too. Tastes and looks great! I made the dressing exactly as stated. For the lettuce aspect I used sugared almonds instead of pecans, only b/c that is what I had on hand. I used the snack size of mandarin oranges and plan on using the rest of the dressing, etc. for tomorrow's lunch (DH and I are only 2 people not 8). Thanks for sharing quikgourmet. Made for Zaar Soup tag. Update-lunch was divine! This would be wonderful with leftover chicken. Can't wait to try it.

This is an excellent salad! I made this for lunch this afternoon {minus the dressing} for my mom and myself. We relished every spoon of this. I used regular oranges in this and not the mandarin ones because they weren't available on hand. Also, I omitted the sugar{since mom is on a sugar-free diet} and the pecans as well{we don't get 'em here} because I wasn't keen on substituting almonds or walnuts, either. We refrigerated the salad for 4 hours before we had it and that we believe is what is best for this one. In the summer heat, this one's going to be a regular on our table. Thank you for posting the recipe :)
