The everything salad

This salad is amazing! It has so many great flavors and it is simple to make.

1/2 cup sliced almonds
3 tablespoons sugar

In a small pan, cook and stir almonds and sugar over medium heat until almonds are caramelized (they will be light brown and coated with melted sugar), approximately 4-6 minutes. Spread the almonds on foil or wax paper. After they cool, break apart.

6 cups romaine, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 green onions, sliced
1 - 11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained

Combine romaine, celery, onions, and mandarin oranges in a salad bowl. Top with caramelized almonds.

1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Combine ingredients in a jar or container with a lid and shake well. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.
