Mandarin Orange Green Salad

I LOVE this salad!  I have been making it for over 20 years.  It is my "go-to" salad to take to friends... along with Chicken Tetrazzini.and maybe a yummy bread and Monster Bars.   You really can't go wrong with this salad - it is yummy with any meal. 



Mandarin Orange Salad

Green leaf lettuce or mixed greens
1 large can mandarin oranges, drained
2 or more green onions, chopped
sliced almonds, toasted
fresh parsley, optional

Dressing:  (I usually double when taking to someone)

1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 tsp Tobasco
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp granulated white sugar
2 Tbsp tarragon vinegar
sprinkling of dried tarragon (if you have it)

Mix the dressing the night before.  Toss ingredients together.  Just before serving, add chilled dressing slowly to achieve desired consistency.
