Orange Walnut Salad (Paula Deen)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SharleneW

This is as pretty as it is easy. The sweet and sour salad dressing would be delicious on a variety of other salads as well. Paula Deen made this on Food Network and it looked so delicious I had to try it right away! This recipe is large enough for a big dinner party, but don't be afraid to rescale for a smaller group.

I made this tonight and came here to post it as it was soooo delicious -- and saw that you had already done so! This is indeed a fantastic salad. I scaled it in third because as is it serves 10 to 12. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing, except maybe to add a few more walnuts! Dianne
