Broccoli and Orange Salad

I had everything on hand for this pretty, delicious salad…just had to make it!  This isn't a new idea, but the oranges and almonds update it.  When I make it again, I will probably cut the onions in half before slicing.  The dressing is just right; and when you spoon up your salad, you get some of all of the topping goodies too.  This is perfect for a winter salad, but also for picnics and BBQ’s where you can have it ready ahead of time.
