On occasion I look thru my recipe box, it is old, yellow and full of recipes I have accumulated during my lifetime. I often get my recipes from the Internet and Cookbooks, but on occasion I like going old school!
This recipe came to me via my Mother In Law a long time ago. It is easy, elegant and very tasty.
1/4 cup slivered almonds (I used sliced)
2 tbl chopped celery (I used 1 whole stalk)
1 small green onion sliced thinly
2 tbl butter
1 small can Mandarin Orange segments drained
2 tbl Orange Juice Concentrate
2 cups cooked rice
Saute almonds, celery, onion in butter until almonds are lightly toasted. This should take 3-5 minutes.
Combine the sauteed mixture, orange segments, orange juice concentrate and rice, tossing to mix.
This can be served hot or cold.
