Romaine With Red Onion, Oranges and Almonds

Total Time

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 used cider vinegar--otherwise followed the recipe--a very refreshing salad. When I made it the second time, I added some bleu cheese and found that to be an excellent addition. Thanks, Inez!
