This recipe has been with our family so long that no one knows who originated it. The dressing is also great on any lettuce salad or even over a fruit salad.

"This is a great recipe! I had a lot of greens on hand, so I used all of them: baby spinach, iceberg, romaine, napa cabbage, and frisee. I also threw in some toasted sliced almonds. I think next time I make this I'll double the mandarin oranges because they were terrific with the other ingredients. And my husband and I LOVED the dressing!!!"
