“Once upon a time, in the recipe request section of an online bulletin board, someone asked for a kiwi mandarin salad dressing. I looked all over for one online, but no luck. So I went to the store and got myself a bunch o' kiwis and such, and came up with one of my own. I had it with dinner that night, and it was darn tasty! The folks on the other board have had it, too, and say they really like it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the kiwis, then whir them in the food processor until they're thoroughly liquified.
  2. They won't be completely liquid because they have a fair amount of fiber in them.
  3. Place in a bowl.
  4. If using canned mandarins, rinse them well (they usually come in syrup).
  5. If using fresh, peel and separate the mandarins.
  6. Then process them well.
  7. Put a sieve over the bowl with the kiwis and pour the processed mandarins into the sieve to separate the juice from the pulp.
  8. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk well.
  9. Pour over field greens salad mix and enjoy!
  10. Pine nuts make a nice garnish for this dressing.
  11. Note: I created this recipe as a request from a user on an online bulletin board.
  12. Fresh mandarins are preferred, rather than canned, for sure.
  13. Also, other people who've tried this recipe really like it- one substituted balsamic vinegar, but it's such a strong vinegar (and would cover the taste of the kiwi) I think the rice vinegar is better.
