Directions

  1. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Stir the almonds and 3 tablespoons sugar together in the skillet; cook until the sugar has melted and coats the almonds; 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Whisk the vegetable oil, vinegar, hot sauce, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Toss the spring mix, oranges, strawberries, celery, onion, and parsley together in a large mixing bowl; drizzle the vegetable oil mixture over the lettuce mixture and stir gently to coat. Sprinkle the toasted almonds over the salad to serve.

I love this salad! It is very visually appealing and is a great mixture of sweet and tangy. The first time I made it, the sugar and almonds just made a gloppy lump in the pan. I added a bit of water, about a Tbs., and heated until the water boiled and evaporated. This created nice, crisp, sugar-coated almonds. I cool them on a plate that has a light coating of no-stick spray. This salad will become a standard in our home.

I made this salad exactly according to the recipe. It was light and refreshing. The combination of the hot sauce and sugared almonds was a great combination of flavors. I will definately make this again.

I have made this salad many times and always got rave reviews. I use pecans and add 1 tbsp of marg when I'm toasting the nuts. A delicious recipe!
