This is another favorite salad of mine. I got it off of www.justgetoffyourbuttandbake.com. Here it is. So simple.
1 head lettuce
1 bunch spinach
3/4 lb. sliced mushrooms
3/4 lb. grated Swiss or Mozzarella Cheese
1 red onion
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup slivered almonds
3 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1/3 Cup White vinegar
3/4 cup oil (Crisco, canola or olive oil)
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. grated onion (opt)
3/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. prepared mustard
*I add onion rings to the dressing… so that it flavors it, then I remove the rings. Some picky people don’t like onion!
Cook sugar and almonds over low heat until light brown. Mix first 5 ingredients; sprinkle almonds, bacon, and oranges over the top. Serve with Poppy seed dressing.
