Dressing:
In screw top jar, combine oil, honey, lemon juice and lemon peel. Cover and shake well. Chill.

In a large bowl combine lettuce, mandarin oranges, berries, celery and onions; toss well. Top with nuts. Toss with dressing just prior to serving. You may not need all the dressing. (Note: a sprinkle of feta cheese really tastes good with this salad)

Sugar coated nuts:
Place 3-4 Tablespoons sugar in a medium skillet. Cook sugar over low to medium heat until the sugar melts. Add - cup walnuts or pecans and quickly coat with melted sugar. (I like to add sunflower and pumpkin seeds to the nuts). When coated, turn onto a piece of waxed paper. Let cool before breaking apart.
