Mexican Shrimp Cobb Salad by Skinny Taste

Tyler and I have been eating not so healthy lately, mostly because I love to cook and the fun things to cook are not always the least amount of calories! So I went on a search for a good salad and this is what I found:

Mexican Shrimp Cobb Salad 

For the Shrimp:
  • 16 oz cooked large shrimp, peeled
  • chipotle chili powder to taste
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • salt to taste

For the Salad:
  • 6 cups romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 15 oz black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup grilled corn kernels (I used Trader Joe's frozen roasted corn)
  • 2 tbsp red onion, divided
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 seedless cucumber, diced
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1 ripe hass avocado, diced
  • 1 cup reduced fat Sargento Mexican Blend shredded cheese


Rinse shrimp and chop into large chunks. Toss shrimp with a little salt, chipotle chili pepper, and fresh lime juice.

Combine drained beans, corn, red onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt to taste.

In a large glass trifle dish or clear bowl, layer salad ingredients starting with the lettuce, black bean mixture, cucumber, tomatoes, avocado, cheese and shrimp on top.
