One small can of mandarin oranges in juice, Dole is a good brand but any brand will do.
Mandarin orange juice from the can of oranges used in this recipe, use about 1/2 cup
Red wine vinegar or vinegar of choice, About 1/4 cup
Olive oil, 1/4 cup or less
Soy Sauce, 1 tablespoon (or 1/2 teaspoon salt)
Black pepper, 1 teaspoon
Walnuts (or sliced Almonds), About 1/2 cup
Start your salad with greens, tomatoes sliced then quartered to get quarter slices and put into fridge for now. Grilled Salmon or seafood but can also be served with BBQ or roasted chicken.
Make the dressing by mixing mandarin orange juice, vinegar, olive oil, soy sauce and black pepper.
Spread mandarin oranges over the salad and sprinkle the salad lightly with vinegar to keep it fresh.
Apply the nuts to the top of the salad and serve with the dressing in a dispenser or like I do, a measuring cup and fork to stir it! Either way it's best when the dressing is applied when served.
