1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup salad oil
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pour into jar with lid and shake well. Chill
To Make the Salad:
Purchase Boston Bibb lettuce. You want enough lettuce to place several entire leaves on a salad plate. This lettuce comes green or with red leaves. Purchase one or two large cans of mandarin oranges and drain juice. Purchase fresh white mushrooms. Purchase blanched almonds and toast at 350 degrees until lightly browned.
To Assemble Salad:
Wash Bibb lettuce and place two or three whole leaves on salad plate. Then add Mandarin oranges, sliced mushrooms and almonds in the center of the leaves. Pour dressing over the top.
This is a light, delicate salad.
