Crunchy Frisco Salad

Here is another salad from the 1980's.  A five-ingredient salad that combines the crunch from the greens and the sweet citrus of the Mandarin oranges along with a sprinkling of sliced mushrooms tossed with Italian dressing and topped with French Fried onions.
Simple and delicious.

Crunchy Frisco Salad

2 quarts salad greens
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 11-ounce can Mandarin oranges, drained and chilled
3-oz French fried onions
1/2 cup Italian Salad dressing

Toss greens, mushrooms and oranges. Just before serving add fried onions and Italian dressing.  Toss gently.

Serves 6

I would never think of adding mandarins but can see they would be lovely, I would have to Skipp the mushrooms though 😁

I would use canned mushrooms instead...... love 'em cooked but don't like them fresh or raw, lol!

That sounds like a salad of today except maybe for the french fried onions--do we still use fresh mushrooms on salads? I do! It all sounds like something I'd make today. It's interesting how food styles come and go just like clothing and house decor. :-)
