Great Salad

This lovely lady gave me this salad recipe after we had it on Sunday! She is so hospitable and not stingy with her recipes! :) Thanks Elizabeth!

1 head romaine
1/2 cup slivered almonds, pan roasted (3 tbsp sugar over med heat till syrupy, then add almonds till covered in syrup, spread out on wax paper, wait, then break apart)
2 cups grapes, halved
1 large can mandarin oranges, drained.

1/2 tsp salt
pepper - to taste
hot sauce - couple of drops - to taste
2 T sugar
2 T seasoned rice wine vinegar
1/4 c canola oil

Mix all together and serve. Once dressing goes on - eat right away. Top with almonds so they stay crunchy, don't mix in with the rest.

Serving suggestions:
1. Main salad with chicken or pork on top
2. Side salad with pork or chicken as main dish (with starch and bread)
3. Main salad with more fruit in it like pineapple and kiwi
