Reviews for Southwest Corn Bread Salad
"Yummy recipe. I used fresh roasted green chilies in corn bread I also added a 1/2 c. fresh roasted grn. chilies to the salad. I replaced the green pepper with 3 jalapenos and used green onions instead red onion & let sit in fridge over night. It was very tasty, the whole family loved it."

"The cornbread was an odd base for the "salad". I would have preferred it on the side."
