"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Directions:
In a small skillet over medium heat, cook almonds and sugar stirring constantly until almonds are coated and sugar is dissolved. This is a slow process and sugar should carmelize over onions. Watch carefully as they will burn easily. When finished cooking turn out onto dinner plate and allow to cool. Then break up into small pieces and store in Ziploc bag until ready to use. Mix all dressing ingredients and chill. Mix lettuces and onions. Just before serving add almonds and oranges. Toss with the dressing.
