Incredible Cornbread Salad

Margaret Queen


This makes a BIG Salad ! I like to assemble this in a family – size Glad Container with the snap lid. This makes it handy for traveling and storing the leftovers…if there is any ! This recipe can be cut in half, but for picnics and family reunions, I HAVE to make the full recipe.
Hope you enjoy !

How to Make Incredible Cornbread Salad


  • 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix ingredients for the cornbread and pour into a well greased 9 inch baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Turn out onto a plate and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • 2In medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the dressing. Mix until smooth and no lumps are present. Place in the refrigerator to chill until ready to assemble the salad.
  • 3To Assemble the Salad:
    Use a large dish that is at least 4-5 inches deep. A triffle dish makes a really nice presentation.
    Start by crumbling 1/2 of the cake of cornbread into the dish. Next layer the following ingredients in this order: Pinto beans, corn, 3/4 cup green pepper, 1/2 onion and 1 1/2 cups of the roma tomatoes. Spread 2 1/4 cups dressing evenly over the tomatoes, followed by 1 cup shredded cheese, and 1 package bacon bits. Repeat the layering in the exact order to finish all the ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
