    Lise in Indiana's Note:

    The flavors of a margarita - tequila, orange and lime - are blended in a tossed salad of fresh shrimp, diced avocado and sliced red onion, spiked with a creamy, spicy sour cream dressing.

    Creamy Lime-Chile Dressing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Toss shrimp, tequila, orange zest, lime zest and salt in a medium bowl. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    2. 2
      Place onion in a small bowl, cover with cold water and some ice; let stand for 10 minutes, or until ready to use.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, make Creamy Lime-Chile Dressing by whisking all dressing ingredients together.
    4. 4
      Toss romaine, endive, orange segments and the drained onion in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Divide among 4 plates. Toss avocados with lime juice and divide among the salads.
    5. 5
      Drain the shrimp, reserving the marinade. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and sauté until pink and firm, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide among the salads.
    6. 6
      Add the reserved marinade to the pan and bring to a boil, stirring; then spoon over shrimp.
    7. 7
      Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
    8. 8
      Note: dressing will keep covered and refrigerated for up to 2 weeks - also great as a Caesar salad dressing on romaine with croutons and Parmesan shavings.
