Inspired by: Mandairn Orange and Almond Salad, Fisher Chef’s Naturals, Natural Sliced Almonds Package Label

The original recipe used almond slice instead of cashews.  It caramerized nuts with a lot of sugar.  It also used the red onions instead of radishes. The original dressing did not include vinegar, and it was nearly 100% oil.  I suspect that 1/2 C vegetable oil was meant to be 1/2 TBSP vegetable oil.
