This has to be one of my all-time favorite salads this time of year as the oranges are at their peak season.
1 large head of red leaf lettuce-washed, dried and chilled
1 sm. red onion-thinly sliced in rings (about 1/3 cup)
2 oranges peeled and cut into sections
1 small jicama cut in julianne strips
1/3 cup sugared almonds (see directions below)
Place 1/2 cup sliced almonds in non-stick skillet. Sprinkle with 3 T white sugar. Over medium head stir until sugar dissolves and almonds are coated. Cool.
Dressing: Mix together and chill
1/2 cup orange juice
2 T. red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T. sugar
1 T. Good Seasons dry Italian salad dressing mix
Toss salad right before serving. Sprinkle almonds on top.
