My entire family loves this salad—especially when I fix it with fresh-picked sweet corn. The summery ingredients and fragrant cilantro make it a good match for a barbecued main course. —Diane Lynch, Sugar Grove, Illinois
I shared this recipe with a friend a while back. Now we kid about who will make it when we're attending the same event! No matter who brings the salad, it's always a hit at get-togethers.
This colorful and tasty salad is always well received at picnics and potlucks. Corn bread salads have long been popular in the South but may be new to people in other regions. No matter where you live, I think you'll like this one!

Spice up dinner tonight with a hearty salad that's got something in it for everyone! I made this cobb salad recipe for a party, and it was a huge hit. Hot sauce gives it a little kick, while cilantro and avocado cool things off. —Mary Meek, Toledo, Ohio
My mother, Nena, grew up in Cuba and learned many styles of cooking. She had a knack for making something incredibly simple taste incredibly amazing. This salad is proof. By itself, the dressing is really tart, but add the avocados and onions and it's the perfect complement. —Marina Castle, Canyon Country, California
“My love for Southwestern flavors led me to create this party-perfect dish. I’ve been experimenting with smoked paprika for a while and discovered that it’s an ideal addition to this recipe.”—Kelly Faust, Louisville, Kentucky
My daughter gave me the recipe for this hearty, zippy salad. I've used it many times and received compliments. When it comes to bean salad, most people think of the sweet three-bean variety, so this is a nice surprise.
