Mandarin Orange Salad

I promised Twinny some recipes, and this is one of my favorites.

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1 pinch ground black pepper

1. In a jar with a tight lid, combine all ingredents. Cover and shake well. Refrigerate until use

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup white sugar
1 head red leaf lettuce or 1 bag of baby spinach
1 red onion, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
2 (11 oz) cans madarin orange segments, drained

2. In a meduim saucepan over meduim heat, cook and stir the sugar until it is melted, then add the almonds and coat. Remove from heat, cool, and break into pieces.
3. In a large bowl, toss the lettuce, celery, oranges, almonds and dressing until evenly coated.

P.S. I forgot to mention that this recipe came from my wonderful boyfriend's step-mom, Eve.
Thanks very much to her!
