Reviews for Chili Corn Bread Salad
"I've made this for years. My family of 4 boys grew up eating it, and still love it today. It's a great summertime dish or for anytime. I can't leave it alone! Worth the prep time."
"A real pain in the arse to make, but you (and everybody else) will love it. It feeds at least 20 people. REALLY BIG!"
"I picked this recipe to make for a potluck and had to rely on my husband to prepare it. It was easy enough for him to put together AND was a real crowd pleaser. It tasted delicious and looked pretty in my serving dish as well. I will definitely be making this again!"
"Everyone loves this dish. I add 1/2 lb. cooked grnd beef + 1/2 lb. cooked pork sausage to the bacon layer. Try warming your serving in the microwave for about 30 seconds & you'll eat even more of it."
"I make this using the Buttery Cornbread recipe from Best of potluck by TOH. I leave out the chili's and other seasonings and cut out just the amount called for in this recipe. I also added a can of black beans and I use 1 package thawed frozen corn instead of canned. This is good stuff! My kids and husband love it. It is even better after a day or two in the fridge and the cornbread never gets soggy."
"I've been making this for years, and it's always a hit. It's week worth the time it takes to make it."
"I have made this many times over the years. It is a huge hit at pot lucks and with my family. The only reason why I don't make it more often is because of the time involved for the prep work."
"I always get rave reviews from my company on this wonderful, hearty salad! And it actually lasts for days in the refrigerator."
"This salad is always a hit no matter where I take it. I highly recommend it."
"My family has been crazy about this salad since I first made it in 2000!"
