Company Salad with Sugared Almonds
Note: Check to see if your store sells sugared almonds; if so, you'll save yourself a step.2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
5 teaspoons white granulated sugar
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a small skillet, cook and stir 2 tablespoons of sugar over medium-low heat until melted. Stir in almonds and cook for 1 minute or until lightly browned. Spread onto foil, coated with a light spray of nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mixed greens, romaine, oranges, celery, and onions. Make the dressing by whisking together in a small bowl, the oil, cider vinegar, sugar, parsley, and salt. Make sure the sugar is dissolved. Drizzle dressing over salad, add almonds, and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
