"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Romaine lettuce
1 pkg. slivered almonds
1/2 t. salt
1 can mandarin oranges
1/4 t. tobasco sauce
1 c. celery
1/2 t. pepper
green onions, chopped
2 T. tarragon vinegar
parsley flakes
2 T. sugar

1/4 c. oil

To carmelize almonds: Put some sugar in a frying pan. Add almonds and cook at medium heat until the sugar carmelizes. Watch carefully! Cool on waxed paper and break apart with hammer.
Gently toss salad ingredients.
Shake dressing well. I usually double this recipe. Pour over as desired.
