Mandarin Salad

Janae made this recipe for my family on my birthday and has since become I one our favorite salads. Even my kids will eat it. It comes from the Lion House cookbook.

2 quarts salad greens torn into pieces
2-3 ribs celery cut on diagonal
1 can Mandarin oranges drained
2-3 green onions cut on diagonal
1 c grapes (either green or red)
1/2 c pecans coarsely cut

Clean and dry greens thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients. Toss to mix well. Just before serving toss with dressing using enough to moisten lightly.


2 T sesame seeds toasted( place in a pie tin in a 350 degree oven and brown for about 5- 10 minutes)
3 T sugar
1 t salt
1/4 c salad oil
2 T vinegar ( I use apple cider vinegar)

Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Dressing may be stored in fridge. Shake well before using.
