The components of this salad are wonderful. They are some of my taste and textural favorites.

Canned mandarin oranges make a pretty delicious salad addition because of their sweetness from the syrup. As well, they have a super soft texture.

There’s also plenty of crunch from the nuts and ramen noodles.

The tang and flavor from Balsamic Dressing bring all the flavors together. Get the Balsamic Dressing here.

Romaine Toss,


The nice thing about this salad is it’s seasonless. By using canned mandarin oranges that are available year-round you can enjoy this salad whenever the mood hits.

However, it is best to assemble this salad immediately before serving.
