1 cup sliced almonds
6 tbsp sugar
1 head iceberg lettuce
1 head romaine lettuce
2 cups celery
4 whole green onions, chopped
2 - 11oz cans of mandarin oranges - drained

1 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tbsp. chopped parsley
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
dash of tabasco sauce

In a small pan over medium heat, cook almonds and sugar, stirring constantly until almonds are coated and sugar dissolved. Watch carefully as they will burn easily. Cool and store separately in an airtight container. **Don't let them harden in the pan!
Mix all dressing ingredients in a clean glass jar. Shake. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Wash and dry salad greens. Tear into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl. Finely chop celery and onions and add to salad greens. Wrap and refrigerate. The second day toss salad greens, drained oranges, almonds and dressing together.
