Craisen Salad

1 head red leaf lettuce
2 heads boston/bibb/butter lettuce
1 large can mandarin oranges, drained (or fresh if you have them)
1 cup craisens
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 cup sliced almonds
1 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. maple syrup(or agave, but I like maple syrup best!)

Saute almonds over medium heat with butter and maple syrup, stirring constantly until light brown (be careful not to burn). Remove from pan and set aside. Toss all remaining ingredients together. Add nuts and dressing right before serving.
**Again I like to taoos a small amount of dressing on each individual salad so you can save the leftover salad and it's not soggy.
**Because this is a homemade dressing without fillers a little goes a long way!
**Also when I made this I only did one head of each red and butter lettuce and it was still tons! One head of lettuce would be plenty for a family of 6.
