Better Results Than the Last Recipe!

I made a different layered salad for dinner last night.  Everyone liked it and had seconds. There is a tiny bit left over for lunch today but it will be snagged by one of the guys, I'm sure!  It turns out I took it for lunch to a meeting I was attending, didn't have time to eat it there, so brought it home and enjoyed it.  It was even better the second day!

Make this in a glass bowl to really "wow" your audience!

Tex-Mex Shrimp

Ingredients (from the bottom):
Quinoa (cook according to package instructions -- my husband had picked up a roasted-pepper flavor quinoa/brown rice mix. It worked just fine!)
Jarred Tomatillo Sauce
Frozen Corn (steam, season with salt)
Diced avocado (toss in fresh lime juice)
Canned black beans (rinsed)
Boiled Shrimp (we used precooked small ones and I just steamed them to get them thawed and warmed up)
Minced Red Onion (I used really thin strips -- should have minced)

The only suggestion the guys had, and I agree, is that the tomatillo sauce was quite mild for this many items and a spicier green salsa would be even better.
