"I have previously posted recipe #9822 Shrimp "Margarita" salad and this is a take off from it. The first recipe posted is an appetizer or starter salad. This is a dinner salad for two. Get everything ready ahead of time and store in the fridge then just assemble at dinner time. Do not peel the avocado until just before you are assembling the salad plates. Arrange everything artisticslly on the plate. Put the dressing on the table so they may add as much or as little as they want. A short cut is to use canned manderine instead of fresh Tangerine. The drssing is wonderful and would be an asset to any salad"
