Berry and Roasted Almond Salad

I was pretty much trying to duplicate the Nuts about Berries salad at Zupas... one of my favorite places to eat lunch with Steve and the kids. It's a pretty close replica!

1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1/4 sugar
1/4 vegetable oil
1/4 tsp paprika
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
Slivered roasted almonds (I roast my own in oven with a cinnamon, sugar, salt, egg, and almond extract mixture for about an hour or so, stirring often)
2 hearts of romaine
mix of berries - strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc (approx. a quart total)

In a bowl mix the sugar, vinegar, paprika, oil, and worchestershire sauce. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours. In a bowl, toss berries, romaine, and almonds. Mix with the dressing just before serving.

I'll add my exact cinnamon roasted almond recipe later. This salad is so yummy and those almonds really make it, in my opinion. Enjoy! :)
