This is the salad that I take to pot luck dinners and it always gets a good reception. It goes
best with Chuck’s salad dressing recipe that can be made fresh. Give it a try!
1 large bag of romaine lettuce or spinach greens
1 can Mandarin oranges in juice not syrup, 11
¼ pound fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced thin
½ cup slivered almonds
Salad dressing to taste – try Chuck’s recipe
First, toast the slivered almonds by spreading them on a cookie sheet and placing them in a
350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Watch them very carefully since they burn easily, stirring
once or twice. Take them out a little earlier than when you think they are done. Give them five
minutes to cool down because they will get a little crunchier as they cool. Then you can taste them
to see if they are done.
Combine all ingredients, toss with dressing and enjoy!
