This mandarin orange romaine salad recipe comes from my sister, Elaine, and is my type of salad...it is easy and delicious, and makes a refreshing change from Caesar salad.

Ingredients

Salad:

  • Sliced almonds
  • White sugar optional
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup celery sliced

  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dry mustard
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped

Instructions
