We love this salad with a little juicy sweetness from the orange, and the crunch of the almonds. I like to serve this one with a citrus marinade pork tenderloin, ham, and chicken recipes.

This was a terrific salad, my son ate a big bowl without complaining. the sugared almonds and oranges helped. i just used a regular orange without the membrane, rather than using canned mandarines. the dressing was a nice complement.

This salad was exceptional, the flavour of the cider vinegar and canola oil blended well. I would definitely make it again. I added a few tiny tomatoes.
