Berry-Mandarin Tossed Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
A real winner.....absolutely delicious just as written. Love the strawberries in it, they add wonderful flavor and make it look so pretty.
This recipe is absolutely perfect as written. I brought this to our after golf group meal twice and it has been a home run each time!
Have made this for many occasions and it is a hit every time.
I did not use the berries either, as they are not in season. Instead, I just added extra mandarin oranges. Everyone loved this salad (including the 4 men at the table)!
I prefer simple, homemade salad dressings rather than bottled ones. This is a keeper!
Wonderful salad. My sister in law used to call it "lick the bowl salad". Just don't add the dressing until you are ready to eat it.
I have been making this salad for several years and always get rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I prep everything the night before but I don't combine the dressing, berries or mandarins with the other ingredients until right before serving. Instead of mixed greens I just use a package (3) of Romaine hearts.
Good, takes a long time for dressing to cool; makes ALOT
I have made this recipe many times. I'm always asked for the recipe, so many times that I keep a copy on my computer ready to print out. My tweaks: For the dressing, I use only 1 Tablespoon honey; omit the grated onion; omit the celery seed. I add poppy seeds and sesame seeds, probably 1/4 tsp each, maybe a little more. For the salad, I omit the onion, bacon, and plain almonds. I add either candied almonds or candied pecans pre-made from the grocery store. Delish!
Outstanding recipe! We made it without the strawberries, since they were out of season and the salad was a HUGE hit with friends. We ate all of it a dinner and I ended up making more the next day for my husband and I to enjoy! A++
