Reviews for Mandarin Salad
"A very unusual combination of ingredients, but very good and oh so simple."
"What an excellent salad...I can see using this as a potluck side dish...thinking it would make a great refreshing summer salad...just prepare the mayo dressing and put everything in the frig and mix together before serving...I cut this down to 2 servings and ate the whole thing for my lunch...made for "Best of 2015" tag game..."
"An all-time favorite salad for its simplicity, brightness of flavor & mixed textures. I used mixed greens. Such an easy-fix, but company-worthy too. 1 of the few recipes I don't mind making at the last moment. Would prefer more juice & less mayo in the dressing. :-)"
"Very simple and refreshing! I used spring greens. I will cut the greens in half the next time I make, as this salad does not keep will for leftovers."
"Hard to believe this simple recipe is so very good. Loved it! Will make many times this spring and summer. Thank You!"
