This salad was such a hit at a Cinco de Mayo party last year, that several guests asked the host if I would bring it again this year. I have even jazzed it up with fiesta ranch seasoning, some chopped cilantro and black olives for a change.

I made this for our church homecoming & it was a big hit.

The clear glass bowl makes a spectacular presentation, but has anyone used a rectangular pyrex so it is easier to get some of each layer? If so, a 2 or 3 qt?

I have made this several time for different occasions and used a mexican cornbread mix and it was GREAT!!! My husband who is not a big "salad eater" will devour this.

Hi all just wondering as recipe nor video says if salad gets mixed before serving? Thanks.

No, we never have

greatttttttttttttttttttttt

A friend of mine gave me this recipe and I took it to a church fellowship last week. Big hit! Several people asked for the recipe, so am printing off 10 copies to take to church this week! Make sure you seed your tomatoes - my friend didn't and she said it looked a little messy.

If you have chilled this overnight (like "traditional layered salad), please let me know the results! Thank you!! Bon appetit'

I made it using 1 can of pinto beans and 1 can of black beans, both rinsed and drained. Everyone LOVED it!

Gotta try this one for the family at a get together,other wise i might end up eating the whole thing from the sounds of the reviews,,thanks so much.

I have made this cornbread salad before. It is the best I and my friends and family have EVER tasted!

So very good.

I make this all the time. But I do 2 layers of each.

Yes, vclopeer, I also do 2 layers. And I love onions, so I put little rings of red or white onions in my layers & sprinkle the green ones on top. Love this!

Mix the pinto beans with home made salsa, before adding the bean layer. Also can use leftover mexican cornbread for an extra kick. It's yummy!

Right under the dressing, I added a layer of baby spinach & romaine lettuce. I made sure the greens were thoroughly dry before I layered them.

The first time I heard of cornbread salad, was at a potluck. One of the guys from Louisiana brought it. It sounded so unusual, I had to try it. "It was absolutely wonderful!" Finally, I found a recipe for it. Thanks!

I made this salad for a big (2 Day) family get together last weekend.It was such a hit that I had to turn around and make it again for the next day. When I told everyone where i got the recipe they couldn't quit saying OOH IT'S SO GOOD!
