Salad Sunday- Orange Almond Salad

It was 81 F in Milwaukee today. Time to put away the soup pot until the weather gets cold again.  Summer weather means summer food and salads are great for summer.
This recipe is really easy and takes just minutes to put together. I usually use canned mandarin oranges, but today I used fresh ones.  You can change up the dressing to change the taste. This is also good with Asian Orange ginger dressing.  Change up the dressing to give the dish a different taste. This salad is great for pot luck lunches. Every time I bring this dish I get raves.  Enjoy this taste of summer.  This is what I am going to be eating for lunch this week. I can't wait.
