Tangy orange pieces and a spicy citrus-honey vinaigrette liven up mild-flavored romaine lettuce. With the addition of chicken and almonds, this no-cook salad is substantial enough for a main dish so you’ll only need to pair it with crackers or crispy bread sticks to make it a full meal. The dressing can be made several days ahead. The assembled salad, though, will only hold-up well for several hours if it’s kept chilled. For a portable lunch, pack it in a lunch bag with an ice pack or store it in a refrigerator at the office. Vary the fruit by subbing two tangerines or seedless clementines for the orange.
