This recipe appeared in our local newspaper years ago. I adapted the recipe to suit our tastes. My husband, Ron, is a great cook, and we've been sharing the kitchen since his retirement. - Sherry Edwards, Camden, Arkansas

When making Corn Bread Salad, you can either use your own homemade corn bread recipe or an 8-1/2 ounce mix. If using a mix, follow package directions. When cool, crumble about half the corn bread to measure 1-1/2 cups for the salad. Crumble and freeze the remaining corn bread for another use, or cut it into squares and serve with soup.
