Sauce
1) Cook orange juice in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until it is reduced to the consistency of syrup (makes about 1/4 cup); let cool slightly.
2) Place onion, lime juice, mustard and chili powder in a blender; add cooled syrup.
3) Blend 30 seconds. Then, with blender running, slowly drizzle in the salad dressing so that the mixture emulsifies.
