Shrimp fajitas make a fast, flavorful feast

Serve these flavorful shrimp fajitas for a weeknight meal, or make a bigger batch for a group feast. The shrimp marinade in the recipe works well, but if pressed for time you could substitute a purchased fajita sauce.

Corn and black bean salad is a festive, colorful side dish. Here’s how to make it: Toss 1 cup frozen corn kernels (defrosted) and 1 cup low-sodium black beans (rinsed and drained) with 1/4 cup reduced-fat vinaigrette. Spoon into 2 large romaine lettuce leaves.
