Candied Orange Almond Salad

Published on December 26, 2019

This was inspired by Trader Joes’ “Leafy Greens with Butternut Squash Salad Kit” that has a yummy flavor added to the almonds that wasn’t listed on the package. I was guessing it was orange. The kit has arugula, spinach, Lolla Rosa, radicchio, light-green frisée, candied almonds, dried cranberries, feta cheese and cooked butternut squash.
