Mandarin oranges add the color and the dressing adds the zing to this mixture of greens. You can use spinach or iceberg lettuce in place of romaine, or use a combination of any of them.

This is a keeper! Watch out though - this makes a LOT of dressing more than one salads worth. That is OK - it keeps well and is delicious. A couple of notes: for the salad dressing I used 2 tsp of kosher salt instead of the 1 Tablespoon called for and it was fine. I also added about 2 Tablespoons fresh sweet onion to the dressing and blended it in. That was a nice addition. Thinly sliced red onion would be great in this salad and add even more color to a beautiful dish. Thanks Rhonda - you have a winner here! Read More

Light-tasting lovely delicious little salad! I cut the dressing amount in half and I have some left over to try on some cut-up fruit! This is simply delicious. However I might cut back on the sugar a bit next time. I used avocado oil. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Everyone loved this salad. I cut down on the sugar but I always do in every recipe. It does make a lot of dressing but will keep well in the fridge to use another day. Read More

Loved this salad. Made the dressing with about half the sugar and it still turned out great! Read More
