Summer Citrus Salad

Okay, okay, so it's not summer yet...but it's almost Memorial Day weekend (even though it will probably be rainy). At any rate, this is a refreshing alternative to a basic tossed salad.

1 sack pre-washed chopped romaine hearts
1/4 to 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 red onion, chopped or sliced thinly
orange or grapefruit segments (or cheat and drain a can of mandarin orange segments)
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

1 rounded Tbs. orange marmalade (on jam aisle at the grocery store)
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. finely chopped rosemary
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Whisk these ingredients together, then drizzle in approximately 1/4-1/3 cup olive oil while whisking.
