Happy Cinco de Mayo! This is a great opportunity to celebrate the Mexican culture and heritage, and who doesn’t love Mexican cuisine? Instead of the traditional tacos and enchiladas, I wanted to create a modifiable dish that incorporates some authentic Mexican spices.
This Fiesta Shrimp and Black Bean Salad can easily be transformed into a rice bowl if you are looking for a higher-carbohydrate and fibre option. Regardless of the route you go with this recipe, you are getting a dish that is packed full of fresh vegetables, protein, fibre, healthy fats and FLAVOUR!
Protein is found in the tender shrimp and black beans.
Fibre is provided by the many vegetables, black beans, avocado and rice (if you choose to include).
Get your healthy fats from the avocado and olive oil in the dressing.
All the delicious flavour comes from the feta cheese and shrimp seasoning- chili powder, cumin, paprika and garlic salt!
This is a great recipe for a household of divided opinions or appetites. Whip up the rice bowl version for bigger appetites or opt for the salad if you feel like you have been missing out on your veggie intake lately.
I hope this Fiesta Shrimp and Black Bean Salad gets you dancing in your kitchen. It definitely is a party for your tastebuds! Let me know if you give it a try and what version you opted for. Enjoy!
