I live in Japan, so was unable to get some ingredients, but the version I came up with has received raves from everyone who's eaten it. I added 'Craisins' and used seedless red Calfornia grapes, halved, instead of the mandarin oranges. I used regular iceberg lettuce instead of Romaine (strictly because I didn't have Romaine) and added more spinach (regular, not baby leaves). When I toasted the almonds, I waited until they were nearly done and drizzled maple syrup over them, then turned off the fire and waited for them to cool.
People were asking, "What is it about this salad that makes it so refreshing?" One of my top two favorites now!
