Orange and Almond Salad

I made this one to go with our Easter dinner this year. I think it was perfect for the occasion, but the fresh flavors would also work well at a summer cookout.
This recipe comes from TwoPeasandaPot.blogspot.com

Orange and Almond Salad

1 large head of red leaf lettuce-washed, dried and chilled (I used Romaine)
1 sm. red onion-thinly sliced in rings (about 1/3 cup)
2 oranges peeled and cut into sections
1 small jicama cut in julianne strips
1/3 cup sugared almonds (see directions below)

Place 1/2 cup sliced almonds in non-stick skillet. Sprinkle with 3 T white sugar. Over medium head stir until sugar dissolves and almonds are coated. Cool.

Dressing: Mix together and chill
1/2 cup orange juice
2 T. red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T. sugar
1 T. Good Seasons dry Italian salad dressing mix

Toss salad right before serving. Sprinkle almonds on top.
