3 green onions with tops, chopped
1 cup chopped celery (optional)

1 tsp salt - pepper

1/2 cup canola oil
1 Tblsp. snipped parsley (optional)

1/2 cup sliced almonds

Stir together over medium heat in skillet until sugar coated. Pour immediately onto waxed papered cookie sheet and cool.
Five minutes before serving, stir on part of the dressing (probably won't need all of it) and 2 cans drained mandarin oranges. Stir in sugared almonds and serve immediately.
Variations: Can mix iceburg lettuce in with romaine especially to serve a larger group.
Can also add fresh sliced strawberries and/or blueberries in addition to the mandarin oranges for a colorful salad!!
