"Recipes are meant to be shared"

It is my intention to add a couple of recipes here every week. Although between working and playing with my daily blog 'Thibeault's Table', I'm not always successful.

Orange Almond Salad

Orange Almond Salad
Recipe from The Livingwater Restaurant in Unionville, Ontario.

1 large head of romaine Lettuce
Baby leaf Spinach
5 green onions chopped
3 hard boiled eggs
3/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
1 small can Mandarin Oranges
1 1/2 cups homemade or Hellman’s Mayo
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon chopped pimento (roasted red pepper)
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon sugar
Tabasco sauce

Tear lettuce or spinach into bite size pieces. Rinse, drain and dry in a salad spinner.
Place on six chilled salad plates and sprinkle each with chopped green onion, and chopped egg. Drizzle greens with salad dressing. Sprinkle each with a tablespoon of toasted almonds. Garnish each salad with the mandarin oranges.

Salad Dressing

Using a whisk or a blender, add mayonnaise and blend ingredients one at a time into the mayonnaise. Add oil slowly to avoid separation. Check for seasoning, add more salt, pepper or Tabasco to taste. Makes two cups. Refrigerate.

Hi, I've been dying to get my hands on this recipe and was wondering how you came across it? Are those the exact ingredients to make the salad dressing? Because from what I recall there weren't any red peppers? Nonetheless thank you so much for posting this :)

I've had this recipes for years. The recipe was posted in the Toronto Star back in the early 80's.

I have been known to make adjustments to recipes, so just in case I went back and checked the original recipe. I still have the page cut from the Toronto Star's TV guide and the original recipe did contain pimento.

I received a bottle of this dressing from a friend which she purchased at a store. Does anyone know where you can purchase a bottle of this dressing

Jacquie, the dressing is very simple to make.
