southwest salad

So, the summer's officially gone, although not at all in practice:

and it's time to start a new routine, including for us getting back into eating reasonably and healthily. Enter salads, specifically this delicious southwestern spinach salad that I made the other day, complete with homemade dressing and tortilla strips.

Baby spinach with southwest dressing (sour cream and white wine vinegar watered down and mixed with a touch of olive oil, cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper), roasted corn and black beans (not really roasted since I just opened cans of each and sauted them in olive oil for a few minutes, sprinked with cumin and chili powder), shrimp (sauted in olive oil, seasoned with garlic, cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper), sliced avocado, cherry tomatos, and grated cheddar cheese, and whole wheat tortilla strips (cut up whole wheat tortillas baked at 350 for 10-15 minutes)... this was so simple to make, but looking at the finished plate totally made me feel like a professional chef.
