Source:, courtesy Sandra Lee
Serves: 4

1 15-ounce can mandarin oranges
5 ounces pre-washed spring greens
2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
1/2 pint blueberries

1/4 cup champagne wine vinegar
1/3 cup reserved mandarin orange juice
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
3 tbsp. olive oil

Make Salad:
Drain Mandarin oranges and reserve juice. In a large bowl, combine salad greens and fruit. Set aside.

Make Dressing And Assembly:
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine vinegar, mandarin juice, salt, and sugar.

Gently heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in white chocolate until melted. Set aside to cool. Do not refrigerate, as white chocolate will set.

Before serving, slowly whisk in olive oil. Spoon desired amount over salad and toss. Serve remaining dressing on side.

Poster's Notes:
This one actually sounds a little too weird for my tastes but teenagers might really enjoy it. (The show it comes from stirs a lot of passionate controversy so I wouldn't pay much attention to ignore the reviews at the Food TV website...)
