Blender Dips and Sauces

Blenders aren’t just for smoothies – I know, right?

You may think a blender is just good for making a smoothie or a really great, icy margarita. And it may even be my fault that you think this since most of my blender recipes on this site fall in the smoothie category.  As you all know, I love, love, love my Vitamix Pro 750 blender and it is the only appliance, aside from my coffee maker that is allowed to stay on the counter.  Why? Because it is a very versatile appliance that has made life so much easier. 

You really must dust that blender off and get it back on your counter.  Today, I’m sharing more tasty blender dips and sauces recipes from across the blogosphere. Need a new dip recipe because you have company coming? Need a new sauce for your pasta to keep it interesting? Well, we have you covered with this list of non-soup, non-smoothie blender recipes.

The best blender dips, sauces from some of my favourite food bloggers.
