"Mandarin oranges add the color and the dressing adds the zing to this mixture of greens. You can use spinach or iceberg lettuce in place of romaine, or use a combination of any of them."

This is a keeper! Watch out though - this makes a LOT of dressing, more than one salads worth. That is OK - it keeps well and is delicious. A couple of notes: for the salad dressing I used 2 tsp of kosher salt instead of the 1 Tablespoon called for and it was fine. I also added about 2 Tablespoons fresh sweet onion to the dressing and blended it in. That was a nice addition. Thinly sliced red onion would be great in this salad and add even more color to a beautiful dish. Thanks Rhonda - you have a winner here!
