Did You Know?...
The traditional lettuce for this salad is a soft butter lettuce, but you can also use romaine.
It tastes wonderful with spinach as well, although baby spinach is best.
You can use fresh mandarin oranges, but the canned ones are juicy and already peeled so much easier to use.
Watch closely as you toast the almonds. They can move quickly from golden to burnt.
