Salad Ingredients

1 Head Iceberg Lettuce (You can use any lettuce you like)
1 Head Romaine Lettuce
1 Cup Celery – chopped
½ Red Onion
1 11-oz can Mandarin Oranges
1/2 Cup Slivered Almonds
3 TBSP Sugar



Poppy Seed Dressing
¼ Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Prepared Mustard
2 tsp Poppy Seeds
¼ Cup Vinegar
1 TBSP Parsley – chopped
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Black Pepper

 

Salad Instructions
Wash and dry the lettuce.  Cut into bite-sized pieces.  Add the celery.  Chop the red onion and add it to the bowl. In a heavy bottom frying pan, combine the sugar and almonds.  Cook until the sugar is melted and coats the almonds.  When the almonds are cool to the touch, break them apart and place them in a separate dish.  If you leave them to cool in the frying pan, they will stick together and you may not be able to separate them.
Once cool, add to the salad.  Top with the mandarin oranges.

 

Dressing Instructions
Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake vigorously.
