Citrus Salad for Spring

I made this salad for the Passover Seder, which has symbols for Spring on the Seder plate, so a green salad is a perfect accompaniment to the dinner.

Utensils: Cutting board & knife, salad spinner or colander, serving set for salad, bowl
Prep. Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: None, unless you want to toast the almonds
Categories: Vegan, Gluten-free, Sugar-free

Ingredients

1 1/2 pkg. mixed greens, washed & dried
5-6 tangerines or clementines, peeled and separated into sections. (If tangerines are large, cut each wedge in half crosswise)
1/2-1 cup slivered almonds (toasted in a dry fry pan for a few minutes, optional)
light dressing (See below)
Sprouts (optional)

Directions

1. Place washed & dried greens in a large serving bowl; add citrus slices and slivered almonds (toasted or raw).
2. Toss with a light, citrus dressing (see below), and serve immediately.
3. Top with sprouts, also optional. Serve chilled.  Serves 4-6.
