  Categories: Salads
       Yield: 4 servings
  
     1/4 c  Slivered almonds
       1 tb Sugar
 
 ----------------------------------DRESSING----------------------------------
   1 1/2 ts Salt
       2 tb Vinegar
       2 tb Sugar
     1/4 c  Salad oil
       1 tb Parsley
       1 ds Pepper
       1 ds Tabasco
 
 -----------------------------SALAD INGREDIENTS-----------------------------
       2    Butter lettuce;
            Preferred
       1 c  Celery; diced fine
       3    Green onions;fine chopped
            With tops
      11 oz Mandarin oranges; drained
  
   Carmelize almonds by mixing with sugar and stirring constantly over low
   heat until lightly browned. Cool on waxed paper and break into small pieces
   and set aside. Combine dressing ingredients and mix wll. Refrigerate for a
   few hours to marry the flavors. (That is to marry the flavors of the
   dressing, not you and your guest) Just before serving, tear lettuce into
   bite-size pieces and combine with celery, onions and mandarin oranges. Toss
   with dressing and nuts and place on one larger piece of butter lettuce to
   cradle the salad. This will serve 6 so I suggest you cut it in half. --From
