New Twist on Cornbread Salad

While this is a layered salad the individual ingredients aren't separately layered. The vegetables and bacon are blended together which allows the flavors to combine for a really delicious layer. You just can't go wrong with bacon. Here is a completely different version from most cornbread salads in that it doesn't have beans, cheese, chicken or a Southwest flavor. I've tweaked the original recipe and the lady who gave this to me always asked why mine tasted so much better than hers... Trust me - you'll love this one!
