About 15 minutes before serving, take out of refrigerator and add the almonds. Then pour the dressing and again toss. Add the salad to small salad bowls and serve.

Picnicking & Tailgating:

You could make the salad a day ahead of time. Then place lettuce, chicken, orange, apple, and celery in a large zip able plastic storage bag. Pour the dressing into a plastic container and seal. Place both the lettuce fixings and dressing in ice chest. Put the almonds in a small container, the do not need to be in the ice chest.
At the picnic or tailgate site and just before serving, add the almonds. Then pour in the dressing. Re-zip the bag and toss. Then place in paper bowls.

Makes 4 servings.
