Tangerine Tossed Salad Recipe

I learned to cook from my mother when I was a young girl. I like the combination of sweet tangerines and crunchy caramelized almonds in this recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 medium tangerines or navel orange
  • 6 cups torn lettuce
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a small skillet, cook and stir the almonds and 2 tablespoons sugar over medium-low heat for 25-30 minutes or until the sugar is melted and the almonds are toasted. Remove from the heat. Peel and section the tangerines, reserving 1 tablespoon juice.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, onions, tangerines and almonds. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, reserved juice and remaining sugar. Pour over salad; toss to coat. Yield: 6 servings.
