Orange Strawberry Almond Salad

This is my new favorite salad and salad dressing. It is so great for a light Spring/Summer meal and is really good with grilled chicken. I am making this for a yummy side to our Easter dinner along with some Bunny Buns....YUM!

Orange Strawberry Almond Salad
  • 1 package spring mix salad
  • 1 head Romain lettuce chopped
  • 1 can mandarin oranges
  • 1 pint strawberries sliced
  • 1 cup sliced candied almonds
 To make candied almonds, put almonds and 2 Tbsp sugar in pan. Heat on high constantly stirring until sugar liquifies and almonds get toasty. Spread out on wax paper to cool.

  • 1/2 tsp grated orange zest
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice (2 oranges)
  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 package dry Italian dressing mix
Combine and pour over salad just before serving.
