Glenda's Mandarin Orange Salad

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"This sweet and crunchy salad is very kid friendly! I first tried this when I visited my family in Newfoundland, and managed to get a copy of the recipe. Make lots, there won't be any left over. Any kind of lettuce can be used as well as spinach. Raisins can also be added."

Recipe received 5 stars from 19-year old son and hubby (and me). This makes for a pleasant break from the usual lettuce, tomato, and cucumber green salad. I did increase the mustard and used a...
