Reviews for Black Bean Shrimp Salad
"This was okay but not great. The seasoning combination worked well, but it seemed like it would have been better served as a hot dish instead of a salad."
"Have fixed this several times and will continue to do so. I love the combination of flavors. Very good."
"I like to add thawed frozen corn to this recipe and I also like to use small frozen salad shrimp. It's a perfect light meal! Love it."
