Jack's Favorite Salad

Jack's Favorite Salad

1/2 cups sliced almonds

3 Tablespoons Sugar

1/2 head Iceberg lettuce

1/2 head Romaine lettuce

1 cup chopped celery

2 green onions

1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges


1/2 teaspoon salt

dash pepper

1/2 cup vegetable oil (we always use canola)

1 Tablespoon Fresh Chopped parsley (can be made without if you don't happen to have it).

2 Tablespoons sugar

2 Tablespoons Vinegar

Dash Tabasco sauce (to taste) {I put 4 shakes/drops in the last time I made it and it gave the salad a bite. I recommend 1 -2 drops for the best results).

For the Nuts:

In a small sauce pan over medium heat cook almonds with sugar stirring constantly (5-8 minutes.) Cool and store in airtight container. *Don't put them in plastic containers it will melt because the nuts are so hot!

Mixing the Salad:

Wash and tear the lettuces, mix them together in a nice size bowl. Mix salad dressing and chill until ready to serve. Add almonds, oranges, and salad dressing just before serving.
