  1. In a large bowl, combine the romaine lettuce, oranges and green onions.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons sugar with the almonds in saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir while sugar starts to melt and coat almonds. Stir constantly until almonds are light brown. Turn onto a plate, and cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Combine red wine vinegar, olive oil, one tablespoon sugar, red pepper flakes and black pepper in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake vigorously until sugar is dissolved.
  4. Before serving, toss lettuce with salad dressing until coated. Transfer to a decorative serving bowl, and sprinkle with sugared almonds.

Almonds were a nice touch. Didn't care for the dressing, though.

This recipe is very similar to one my grandma used to make. I sometimes use a mixture of romaine and spinach. In my dressing, I also like to use a bit of lemon or lime juice along with the vin...

I loved this salad. The only thing is it doesn't last long. It needs to be eaten right away, no left overs. :o(

Excellent! My wife loved it!
