I would say make a basic vinaigrette and add the juice to your taste

I hide them from my son!!!
He will eat a whole can (large) even if he's had a huge meal.

We also just drain them and eat them plain as dessert.

Re: What do you do with canned mandarin oranges?

We do the asian salad thing here too.

But here is my fall back for whenever I don't have any ideas on how to use up an ingredient...

Re: What do you do with canned mandarin oranges?

We usually just eat them plain - cooled in the refrigerator. My friend makes a yummy chicken salad with mandarin oranges and sliced almonds.

We love them plain also. They are also great on top of custard!

Re: What do you do with canned mandarin oranges?

I make a salad inspired by the "Fandango" at Panera Bread....mixed baby greens, tossed with basic vinaigrette and topped with crumbled gorgonzola, chopped walnuts, and the drained orange segments. Yum!

Re: What do you do with canned mandarin oranges?

A friend gave me a reciepe for yams that you mixed the mandarin orange slices in with, I will have to see if ican find the recipie. It was yummy. Salads or plain or in jello are how we typically eat them here.
