  • 1

    In large bowl, toss salad ingredients, dressing and almonds. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Did You Know? : Be sure to tear the greens by hand instead of chopping with a knife. A chemical reaction between the greens and the metal knife will cause the edges of the greens to brown.
  • Variation : For Crunchy Chicken Mandarin Salad, make salad as directed. Divide among 6 individual serving plates. Top each serving with a grilled boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced (warm or cold). Sprinkle each salad with 2 tablespoons wide or regular chow mein noodles.
