Mandarin Orange Salad

Recipe by
10 minutes
| Servings: 6-8

Mandarins are typically sweeter and less tart than traditional oranges. The sweetness of the oranges is well balanced against the tartness of the vinegar and heat of the hot sauce. A Riesling or Pinot Grigio will work, as would a nice Orange Muscat.


  • 1 pound mixed salad greens
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin orange slices
  • ½ cup slivered almonds (pecan or walnuts can be used)
  • ¼ cup butter

For dressing:

  • ½ cup oil
  • ¼ cup tarragon vinegar
  • ¼ cup of juice drained from can of mandarin oranges
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place salad greens into a large bowl along with all other salad Ingredients.
  3. In a small ovenproof dish, toast almonds with butter until golden brown. Watch carefully to not overcook.
  4. Thoroughly blend all dressing ingredients.
  5. Pour dressing over salad and toss well.
