Margarita Shrimp Salad
The flavors of a margarita--tequila, orange and lime--are blended in this healthy salad recipe of fresh shrimp, diced avocado and sliced red onion, spiked with a creamy, spicy sour cream dressing. Don't shy away from avocados because they're high in calories--avocados are rich in good, heart-healthy fat, as well as vitamin E, folate, potassium and other important nutrients.
A lime at room temperature gives the most juice (1 1/2-2 tablespoons). Before juicing, roll the lime on the counter, pressing down with your hand. If the recipe calls for both zest and juice, grate the zest before squeezing the juice.
