Got this recipe from my "food compatible" best friend and it is a family favorite, as well as an oft-requested pot luck favorite! I keep a bottle of Ranch Dressing on the side ... just in case! This recipe, as is, makes A LOT! You can easily half the recipe and have plenty for family and friends! Hope you enjoy it!

How to Make Cornbread Salad


  1. Make enough cornbread for a 9-inch square pan (can use a mix or go homemade). Bake, cool and crumble. Set aside.
  2. Mix well the following and set aside: 4oz. Hidden Valley dressing packet, 1 cup sour cream and 1 cup mayo.
    note: my family likes more dressing, so I either make more or keep a bottle of ranch dressing on the side.
  3. Place HALF of each of the ingredients in a LARGE bowl in layers in the following order:

    Peppers (both kinds)
    Dressing mixture

    Then repeat!
  4. Cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours or overnight.
  5. To serve: uncover and gently mix to incorporate ingredients. Make sure your bowl is LARGE otherwise stuff starts falling out!
