'Tis the Season for Salad - Tossed Salad with Mandarin Oranges and Almonds

This is another one of those salads that I love - it tastes so fresh and healthy.

Tossed Salad with Mandarin Oranges and Almonds

2 tablespoons minced parsley
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 cups torn romaine lettuce
3 celery stalks, sliced
8 scallions, sliced
One 11-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
2 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted

In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid or in a small bowl, combine the parsley, vinegar, oil, garlic, sugar, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon water; cover and shake well or whisk until blended.

In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, celery and scallions. Add the dressing; toss to coat. Serve, topped with orange sections and almonds.
