This simple Southwest Shrimp Black Bean Salad is an easy, healthy and delicious winner in my book. It’s perfect for a light one-dish lunch or supper.

It’s from one of my most-used Weight Watchers cookbooks,  Weight Watchers Comfort Classics : 150 Favorite Home-Style Dishes . Everything I’ve made from it has been a hit, including this Southwest Shrimp Black Bean Salad. Published back in 2009, it gives the old point values. But every recipe includes nutritional details so it’s easy enough to recalculate to PointsPlus with a Weight Watchers calculator.

Rod, Mom and I all liked this one so I’m adding it to the “make again” file. In fact Mom rated it an A+, not a grade she gives often! This shrimp black bean salad works with the Simply Filling technique too.
