Almond Mandarin Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
Excellent. I made this for a dinner party the other night and usually salads are not the crowd pleaser with the late 20 to early 30 year old males that tend to come for the main dishes. One of the guest had brought some garden fresh romaine lettuce and I used this recipe to incorporate the gift into the meal. All raved about it. I had a little honey left in the bottom of the bear, so I used that to mix the dressing in and added just a little sugar to make up some of the sweet that was lost with the lesser amount of honey. Also I had a red wine vinegar on hand that I used instead of the rice. I omitted the onions for personal taste but added some garlic chive from the garden. I also added some pine nuts for a little texture. I have a small glass ewer that I use to serve dressings in and so I used that so the guest could add as much or little as they wanted and no soggy salad by the end of the meal. Definitely will make this again, very quick, easy, and most ingredients are on hand to either make exactly or do a very good variation.
