"Thanks Ginny for a great recipe. I served this to company and they finished off the bowl. The only thing I omitted was the red pepper flakes. This was so delicious, I can't wait to make it again."
"Yum! I loved this salad! I have made this salad twice now. The only thing I did different was to "toast" my almonds in the microwave, by ading 1 tbsp of butter along with the sugar and microwaving them for 30 second intervals until they were golden brown. The second time I used Splenda instead of the sugar and it still turned out great!"
"A quick, refreshing salad to make at the last minute. I used the juice from the mandarin orange can as suggested by another reviewer and toasted the almond slices. The only thing I would change, a personal preference is to add some mayo or dijon mustard to the dressing to make it a little thicker. Thanks, Carole in Orlando"
"Excellent! be sure not to add the dressing until right before serving (dummy me!) as it got really soggy. I used two prepared bags of romaine as it was easier for me. I also added chow mein noodles for added crunch. My family loved this recipe."
"This is the same recipe I have used and it is very good...light and refreshing."
"Excellent and easy salad. Did not have green onions so I put in snow peas and used a fresh mandarin orange. Thanks for the recipe"
"This is a great version of this salad. The dressing was very tasty, although I made a slight change to it by reducing the oil to 1/3 cup. Since we like just a light coating of dressing on our lettuce, I only used about half of the dressing on our salad. I can't let it go to waste so I guess I'll have to make another batch tomorrow night! "
