Orange-Walnut Salad

I cooked last night! Yummy meal. Two recipes for you. This one is one I've made before but this time I took a cue from my sister-in-law and carmelized the walnuts. That was a nice touch! Very good Salad!

Orange-Walnut Salad

from KraftFoods.com
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 20 min
Makes: 10 servings

1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. sugar (I used Splenda)
1 tsp. grated orange peel
8 cups torn mixed salad greens
2 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
2 cans (11 oz. each) mandarin orange segments, drained
1 cup Walnut Pieces*
1/4 cup green onion slices

BEAT orange juice, vinegar, oil, sugar and orange peel in small bowl with wire whisk until well blended. (Or shake in a Tupperware Quick Shake® Container) Set aside.
TOSS salad greens with cucumbers, oranges, walnuts and green onions in large salad bowl. Add orange juice mixture; mix lightly.
SERVE immediately.

Dressing can be prepared ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Special Extra
For extra flavor, toast walnuts before adding to salad. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 5 to 7 min. or until lightly toasted.

*To carmelize or sugar the walnuts take a large nonstick skillet and add 1/2 to 3/4 Cup sugar and walnuts on medium high heat.
