Remove from the blender and taste for seasoning. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve. Whisk well before tossing with the salad.

My friends and I love to gather at Nordstrom Cafe', but unfortunately can't afford to eat there too often. This salad is identical to what they serve because my patient is the chef there. It does take some prep work, but the results are worth it. I would even reccommend the dressing itself as a marinade.
