Blender Recipes: Salsa, Soup, Dip, Crepes And More

There's one appliance you may have been taking for granted -- the blender. Just try making a milk shake without one, we dare you. But if you think the blender is reserved just for smoothies and blender drinks, you're sadly mistaken.

Salsas, soups, salad dressings, mayonnaise and even crepes can be made in the blender. And if you don't have a regular blender, feel free to use that handheld immersion blender.
