Balsamic Citrus Dressing [Vitamix ONE]

This light dressing is delicious on greens tossed with mandarin oranges and Chinese noodles, or as a chicken marinade.

Balsamic Citrus Dressing


  • ¼ cup (60 ml) white balsamic vinegar, or favorite vinegar
  • 3 medium orange, peeled, halved
  • 3 green onions, root trimmed
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • 2 dates pitted
  • ½ lime peeled
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, optional
  • ½ cup (120 ml) extra virgin olive oil


  1. With a peeler or paring knife, remove the peel and white pith from the lime, leaving just the flesh.
  2. Place all ingredients except olive oil into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  3. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades.
  4. Blend for 30 seconds. Reduce to its lowest speed and remove the lid plug. Slowly pour oil through the lid plug opening until emulsified. Blend for an additional 15 seconds.
