Mandarin Almond Salad

  • 4 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 bunch red leaf lettuce, torn
  • 1 can (11 oz.) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 small red onion, sliced

In a small skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of sugar over low heat. Add almonds and stir until coated. Cool; break into small pieces and set aside. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the oil, vinegar, parsley, salt, pepper, hot pepper sauce and remaining sugar; shake well. Just before serving, combine the lettuce, oranges, onion and almonds in a large salad bowl. Shake dressing over salad and toss. Yield 4-6 servings.
