Mandarin Orange Pecan Salad & Weekend Potluck #18


Pull up a chair.....pour some tea or coffee and sit a spell with us. 
We're very excited about all the awesome posts being linked here weekly!  And we certainly welcome YOU!!


I am not especially fond of green salads, but give me a 'dressed up' salad like this one and I can woof down a big bowlfull...


Romaine lettuce
1 - 12 ozs. can mandarin oranges, drained
pecan halves, toasted in butter then coated with a little brown sugar
green onions, chopped


1 dash pepper
1/4 c. canola oil
2 Tb. sugar
2 Tb. apple cider vinegar
2 shakes tabasco sauce
1 Tb. fresh parsley

Blend together and toss over salad.

I love a dressed up salad too. And salads always taste better when I eat out at a restaurant....HUMMMM!! I wonder why that is?

Don't all those recipes look delicious, and here I am not being in my kitchen for a couple of weeks so I can't try any of them right now. You are so sweet for featuring my Rhubarb Dream Bars. I love them. I am certainly going to have to work on getting buttons for when I have been featured on my blog when I get back. Thanks for hosting. Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks so much for hosting! After all of the junk I've been eating lately that mandarin orange salad would be such a nice change of pace!

Thanks for another link party. I linked up a healthy and simple No Calorie Sweet Green Tea recipe (#140) that's a great alternative to soda. Perfect for hot summer afternoons! Hope you like it and have an awesome week!
