Directions:
TO MAKE DRESSING, combine all ingredients in a jar. Cover and shake vigorously. Refrigerate until ready to use.

TO MAKE SALAD, caramelize the almonds: melt sugar over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add almonds and stir constantly, about 5 minutes. Cool; break almonds apart and reserve in a covered jar until ready to use.
Wash and dry lettuce and tear into bite-size pieces. Combine with celery and green onion. Toss lightly. If you’re making this the day before, the greens should be stored in a large plastic bag.
To assemble, combine salad greens, almonds, mandarin oranges (drained) and dressing. Toss well and serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
This recipe is delicious as is, but I sometimes add Craisins (dried cranberries) and feta cheese—also very good! If I'm short on time, I'll use packaged salad greens.
