This recipe is great. I have made this for years although instead of mandarin oranges I use strawberries. Maybe next time I will try the oranges.
I'm on my 3rd time making this right now and it has been a huge hit both previous times. I used pine nuts both times instead of almonds (just cuz that's what I had, I think the almonds will be better though) and it turned out great too. I'm cutting the sugar a bit each time, but wanting to keep the vinegar balanced.
This was a terrific recipe!! My family loved it. I did make one modification though and used less vinegar. Everyone loved it. This will definitely be a repeat for me!!
This is fantastic! I used all spinach and I subbed walnuts for the almonds because of an almond allergy- I brought it to a party and everyone ate it- there wasn't anything left in the bowl!
We really liked this salad. I used fresh clementines instead of the mandarins and added mushrooms. I had quite a bit of dressing leftover, so i'll cut it by 1/3 or so next time.
I've made this recipe many times, I add strawberries as well and crumbled goat cheese............it turns out excellent!!
Delicious salad. I used a whole bag of baby spinach; didn't have the salad greens. Added sliced strawberries along with the mandarin oranges. I used organic mayo from TJs instead of Miracle Whip, and added a dash of balsamic vinegar to the dressing.
Oh, yummmmmm! Really enjoyed this one. Added strawberries (kept the mandarin oranges) and chopped up some roasted almonds. Even "The Hubbs", whose reason for eating most veggies is "because their good for me", said "feel free to make this any time!" Thanks for a great recipe!
