Gorgeous day today but will be a busy day... getting a cold so that sucks but keep using the Buckleys and hopefully it will just end up being the sniffles...Going to get new glasses tomorrow and then we are having a bunch of hotrod friends for a barbacue on Sunday... we always look forward to that...


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

BEAT orange juice, vinegar, oil, sugar and orange zest in small bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Set aside.

TOSS salad greens with cucumbers, oranges, walnuts and green onions in large salad bowl. Add orange juice mixture; mix lightly.

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.

Was out yesterday picking up supplies and could not believe how busy the stores were... Everyone getting ready for school buying new clothes and school supplies... Wow going into staples there are rows and rows of stuff whatever happened to pencils and papers... Moms had their buggies full with backpacks and new lunch bags.. I think I have the solution for this you need to send dad to get the supplies and no kids... I was watching all the kids say I want this , I want this and I want this... and no moms saying you do not need that or that or that...
