Perfect for any dinner, this salad has amazing flavor because of the Mandarin oranges and the toasted almonds.

- Recipe -

● 1/2 cup slivered almonds

2. When you're ready to make your salad, place the salad greens, oranges and almonds in a salad bowl. Add some of the salad dressing. Toss and taste. Keep this salad lightly dressed!

Note: If you'd like to use the "Good Seasons" salad dressing recipe I used on the show, follow these directions:

2 Then fill to the 2/3 mark with red wine vinegar.

3. Then fill to the 3/4 mark with water. 4. Place oil & vinegar mixture in a jar or sealable container, along with the packet of dressing mix. Shake well.
