Mandarin Orange Salad Recipe
This recipe was given to me by my good friend Lynda!
1 bunch or bag of your favorite mixed Lettuce, chopped
1 small can Mandarin Oranges
1 cup pecans
1/2 cup to 1 cup sugar
1 cup Wishbone Italian Salad Dressing (regular or low fat)
Frank's Hot Sauce
Black Pepper

Caramelize pecans by heating in a pan over medium heat with sugar. Be careful not to burn them. When done, spread out on parchment paper to cool. Place lettuce in a bowl. Add drained Mandarin Oranges, pecans, and dressing.

Dressing:
Combine Wishbone dressing, a couple of tablespoons of sugar, a bit of the mandarin orange juice, a couple of drops of hot sauce, and black pepper to taste. Pour over salad.
