Blackened Shrimp Salad

I love making salads for dinner in the summer. They are quick and easy and use up lots of summer produce. Win-win!

I loaded this salad up with tons of Mexican flavor: grilled corn, black beans, salsa and a couple squeezes of fresh lime juice. The salad gets a spicy kick thanks to the blackened shrimp. The spicy blackened shrimp and the cool sour cream go perfectly together in this salad.

Amazing Blackened Shrimp SaladThe blackened shrimp makes this salad. It has the perfect amount of spice and adds so much flavor to the salad. Use store bought blackening seasoning of try my Homemade Blackening Seasoning.

I like to grill my corn or saute it before putting it on the salad. It adds so much more flavor!

For the dressing I used a drizzle of sour cream and ranch. My Honey Jalapeño Dressing would also be fantastic on this salad. It’s slightly sweet, tart and super creamy.
