This bright, citrusy entree-sized salad only takes 15 minutes to make for when you need dinner on the table fast. We season the shrimp with chili powder for a pop of smoky flavor and pair them with sweet corn kernels, juicy cherry tomatoes, rich avocado slices, tangy queso fresco, and tender black beans. Use any variety of toppings you like.
