Mandarin Orange Salad With Homemade Poppy Seed Dressing

This recipe came from a friend in college. Her name is Kristen and she now has two cute boys, one a Carter only a few months younger than mine.

I made this yummy dish for my friends Tana and Kim on Monday and we had the left overs for dinner that night. Yummy!

Poppy Seed Dressing

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup white vinegar

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 cup oil

touch of honey

1 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoon poppy seeds

chopped onion to taste ( you don't need very much)

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix.


1 head red leaf lettuce

1 head iceberg lettuce

1 or 2 cans Mandarin oranges

2 or 3 avocados

1 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled

So as far as a salad goes I just put in what we have, or what ever I am in the mood for that day. My family loves mandarin oranges and avocados so I put in a lot. I say cook the whole package of bacon because once they smell it I have grabby little fingers snitching at it until I put it on the salad. Use as much as you want.

The poppy seed dressing also goes fabulous on this little salad, a creation on my own.

2 bags fresh spinach

1 green apple diced

a few handfuls of Craisens

1/4 red onion thinly sliced

and some more bacon bits
