Orange-Almond Salad

2 cans (11 ounces each) mandarin orange sections, drained
½ c sliced celery
¼ c thinly sliced green onions
½ c sliced almonds
¼ c oil
2 TBS vinegar
2 TBS Sugar
Dash of salt
1/8 tsp almond or vanilla extract
Clean and tear the lettuce into bite-size pieces. Place the lettuce, orange sections, celery, green onions, and almonds in a bowl. In a screwtop jar, combine the salad oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, and almond extract; shake to combine well. At serving time, pour dressing over the salad and toss gently. Serves 6-8. 

We have been known to put this all together, with the drained oranges in a bowl the salad dressing in a jar and have it ready WELL before dinner, all we do is dress and toss!

This is from my aunt and goes GREAT with "The Casserole".
