Have you heard of Cornbread Salad? If you answered no, then you are missing out.
My sister has been making this recipe for years, and she is in charge of making it for every get-together. This salad is fantastic. Once you taste it, you will see exactly what I mean. Your family will request it at every get-together, potluck, or cookout. I know my family does!
Cornbread, pinto beans, corn, tomatoes, peppers, onion, cheese, and bacon are layered in a casserole dish with ranch-flavored sour cream and mayonnaise. Really?? If it has ranch dressing in it, then it must be good!
I love all of the layers in this salad, and it’s easy to customize to your preferences. Just add or subtract ingredients according to what you like and dislike. Just make sure you add the dressing mixture in the middle of the salad and on top so that everyone gets a taste of that delicious ranch flavored dressing.
This salad is made with homemade cornbread. You could certainly prep all of the ingredients the day before and refrigerate until you are ready to prepare your salad. This would make the salad come together faster and save you some time. It can be eaten immediately, but it is better if you can refrigerate it for a few hours before serving.
Cornbread Salad could be served as a meal, but at my house, it is served as a side dish. You can serve it all mixed up or keep it in layers.
Thanks, Angie for always making your family happy with this dish! 🙂
I bet your family will be requesting this salad as much as mine does!
