I went to a banquet a few days ago and tried this for the first time then I recreated the magic at home   Smiley   Its kind of weird but give it a try.

Iceburg lettuce
dried cranberries
mandarin oranges in segments
pecans
crumbled feta cheese


I had it layered and tried it with 3 different salad dressings to see which was the best. I tried a cucumber ranch, italian and thousand island. I think if I had a vinegarette it wouldve been perfect but each dressing was quite distinct and delicious.

Enjoy!

This is kind of like a salad I like making. Mine is even simpler than yours. Just lettuce and mandarin oranges. Give me that and a good vinegarette and that's all I need to eat.

mmm...this sounds delish! I think I might try it with spinach instead of the iceberg, though (so much more iron and calcium and vitamin-y goodness) Thanks for the inspiration!

Yummy! I make mine with various lettuce, cubes of cheese (whatever I have on hand), black olives, cashews, dried cranberries, dried apricots and a light vinegrette or Italian dressing. Goody Wink

I make something like this. In the variation I make, i use whatever lettuce i have on hand, instead of pecans i use walnuts, and instead of feta i use blue cheese.  Sometimes, if I have them, I'll toss in crutons or sub golden raisins for the craisins.  My fav dressing on this is raspberry vinegrette.  Hubby thought the mandarin oranges on a salad was a disgusting thought, but I think I'm slowly converting him!

My salad is usually boston lettuce (yummy.   Cheesy), grapefruit segments, mandarin segments, strawberry pieces, cauliflower, feta, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, cucumber, usually some pecans, dried blueberries.  With a sun dried tomato vinagrette that Kraft makes (too lazy to make my own)

My favorite sandwich at a local place is chicken salad with celery, walnuts, dried cranberries and blue cheese crumbles. I've make it without the sandwich too...just everything on a bed of lettuce or in lettuce wraps.
