recipe corner – chipolte salad dressing

For Christmas my wife got a Magic Bullet.   For those of you that haven’t seen the infomercial it is basically a blender that looks like…well a bullet.   I have to say that I was sceptical of this little gizmo but since starting to play with it a few weeks ago it is my new favorite kitchen appliance.   This weekend we had friends over and I made the whole menu out of the Magic Bullet.    Hummus, Bean Dip, Salad Dressing, Spaghetti Sauce, Garlic Spread for Bread and Chocolate Mousse…oh and Margaritas!       I’m going to share the salad dressing that really came out great.   I adapted it out of a Mexican cookbook that I have.  It has a little kick so if you are sensitive to that you may want to experiment with the chipoltes.

Into the bullet went:

1/4 of a red onion

3 tbls balsamic

1 teaspoon oregano

1-2 chipoltes (canned with a little of the sauce)

juice of half a lime

1/4 cup water

salt and pepper to taste

Bullet until dressing like.     Add olive or vegetable oil until you get to the consistency you want (stirring as you go) and shake to combine.  Obviously a blender or food processor will work just fine, but you can’t say “abracadabra” as it blends.   Well, you can say that but you’ll just sound stupid.
