Mandarin Orange Salad

Chopped romaine and/or green lettuce
Diced celery (maybe 1 cup?)
1-2 small cans mandarin oranges, drained and chilled


Vegetable oil & white vinegar (I think about a 3:1 or 2:1 ratio)
A few drops hot sauce (they usually label it Cajun or Louisiana; I think Tabasco might be too spicy)
A few sprigs chopped parsley (maybe 1/4 cup?)
optional: poppy seeds

Mix dressing thoroughly until viscous (parsley should be in suspension) and chill before using.


Spinach and Pear Salad

Baby spinach or well-cleaned regular, stems removed
1-2 pears, either in chunks or thin small slices
Either feta cheese or crumbled blue (feta is milder)
Pecans -- If you have time, you can season these by heating in a saucepan with butter a little salt, pepper, sugar & cayenne to taste. You can do a bunch of these beforehand and keep them for later use.

Dressing:  Creamy poppy seed dressing -- buy off the shelf
