Mandarin Orange Tossed Salad


Here’s a great salad recipe that my sister and I have made many times. I forgot about it until recently and got it out to take to a party. It was a big hit and the bowl was empty when I returned home! It’s easy to put together, looks a little fancy and tastes delicious. Just multiply ingredients depending on ...
