Southern Cornbread Salad

Southern Cornbread Salad is a fun layered salad full of your favorite vegetables. Want to wow your guest? Serve this incredibly delicious salad at your next gathering! 



Some time back, after posting on Facebook that I had made this Southern Cornbread Salad, I had several request for the recipe.

I have made this recipe with different variations, but this is the one I created for my family.

This cornbread salad had a lot of vegetables in it and is tossed with Bacon Ranch dressing.  It makes a large salad that is great for family gatherings or potlucks.   You might say it is the Southern version of a Panzanella Salad.

With it being the last weekend of the summer, it seemed fitting to make it.  I seem to make it mainly in the spring and summer, but it is a great salad to make anytime.


I make a 9-inch skillet of cornbread and use half of it in the salad and eat the rest with butter, yum! Some people like a lot of cornbread in their salad and some not so much. You decide how much to put in your salad.





Southern Cornbread Salad

Ingredients:
    1 (9" skillet) cornbread cubed
    2 small heads romaine lettuce, chopped
    2 large tomatoes chopped
    1 (15.5-ounce) can red beans, rinsed and drained (pinto beans)
    1 (15.5-ounce) can sweet corn drained
    1 (8-ounce) package shredded cheddar cheese
    1 medium purple onion diced
    8 ounces Bacon Ranch Dressing
    4 green onions thinly sliced (optional)
Directions:
Layer a large bowl with half each of cubed cornbread, lettuce, and next five ingredients; spoon half of dressing evenly over top.

Repeat layers with remaining ingredients and dressing. Garnish with green onions is optional.

Cover and chill at least 2 hours.  Before serving toss gently or serve layered.

  25. Hi :-> I followed your link here from 'this Chick cooks'.

    There are three main things I like about your salad -

    first, I like that you keep repeating the contents over and over again in lots of layers. I hate when some people get the good toppings and all you get is the other stuff.

    Secondly, I like how much eye appeal it has.

    And thirdly, the combination of the listed ingredients sounds delicious!

    gonna have to try this one...

  39. Hi,
    What a nice blog you have ! And the salad is so colorful and yummy looking! I want to make it but the link for the cornbread recipe is not working for me, or may be the problem comes from blogger or my computer?
    When I click on the link it sends me over to blogger.com sign in page, I'm entering my user name and password but it sends me back to the log in page.
