Romaine With Red Onion, Oranges and Almonds

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Cooking at the Cott

This is a pretty simple salad. Dressing keeps forever and makes enough for 3 or 4 large salads. I keep toasted almonds on hand for this now. Prep time does not include chill time for dressing. If I do not have any onhand, I try to make it the night before.

I have been making this for years. it is a favorite. The dressing is pink and goes a long way.
