I have been looking for this recipe for a long time!!!! Yum... I have already given out the recipe to my sister too. I do think I would try and cut back the oil next time just a bit. Very yummy Lennie!!

Very good salad. I loved the buttery almonds - they were my favorite part. Colorful and refreshing. Next time, I would use less oil as the dressing was a little too oily.

The flavors were good together but I felt the butter used to make the candied almonds was way too much. Mine ended up swimming in butter. I would try using only 1 Tbls. next time. The dressing is a little strong too. There were a few times that it took my breath away when I'd bite into an orange that absorbed a lot of it. A good combo of flavors over all.
