Reviews for Mandarin Orange & Romaine Salad
"Made this for a Christmas event I catered. So pretty and tasty. I also made some sugared almond slivers to go on top. I'm going to serve it again for a party I'm hosting this week."
"I took this salad to a ladies luncheon last Friday, and it got rave reviews. Everyone wanted the recipe. It's simple but light and tasty. I would definitely make it again."
"This is a simple salad with a refreshing dressing. I used white wine vinegar and added 1 tsp. of dried tarragon instead of the tarragon vinegar. I'll try it with toasted almond slices and a sprinkling of feta or bleu cheese next time."
