Mandarin Tossed Salad

9 cups torn romaine lettuce
1-11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 tsp unsalted sunflower seeds or 1/4 cup slivered toasted almonds

3 Tbs canola oil
2 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs cider vinegar
1 Tbs orange juice concentrate
1 ½ tsp red wine vinegar or additional cider vinegar
1 ½ tsp chopped green onion
½ tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp salt

In large salad bowl, gently toss greens, oranges, onion, and sunflower seeds. In a measuring cup combine dressing ingredients. Add enough water to measure 1 cup. Pour into a jar with tight fitting lid, shake well. Pour over salad and toss to coat.
Serve immediately.

*Yum.  This was very good!  Not everyone in our house is big on onions, so I left them out.  Also, I didn't have ground mustard but regular mustard tasted great in the dressing.  Next time I make this I'll just make half of the dressing--that will suffice for our family.
