I did a delirious dance of joy when I tasted this epic salad. The orange citrus dressing has a complex sweet and spicy flavor that will make you weak at the knees, and the crunchy, sweet, and peppery elements of the salad make this dish a satisfying meal or side dish, and a showstopping addition to a potluck or party.
I included this sensational salad as part of a series of recipes I created using the new KitchenAid high-speed blender. You can view all of my recipes on the KitchenAid blog. Use #TheBlendedLife to to share with me what you're making using your blender.
One of the biggest complaints I get with some high-speed blenders is that you can't blend small and large quantities of ingredients equally. With some models, the container is wide and it's problematic blending 1 cup of ingredients for salad dressings, sauces, dips, and creams. The blades just spin and nothing gets blended.
The Pro Line® blender handles small and large quantities equally, and is great for making salad dressings. Furthermore, the tamper with the flex-edge spatula allows you to scrape down the sides of the container while the machine is running to save time while you get an even blend. To learn more about the features of this blender, watch my videos.
Don't miss making this salad. It's a stunner.
