Cornbread Confetti Salad

This colorful and tasty salad is always well received at picnics and potlucks. Cornbread 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! -Jennifer Horst, Goose Creek, South Carolina

    This is an awesome potluck dish. Very tasty and can be a meal in itself. Make sure you are serving a lot of people though - it feeds 20+!

    I made this recpie for the first time for a fellowship this weekend with 13 couples. It was a HUGE hit!! It makes a very big batch and there was only one small serving left at the end of dinner. At least 5 ladies ask me for the recpie! My husband loved it too! The recpie is super easy, affordable, makes a lot, no risk of someone else bringing the same dish (till you share the recpie), and will be a big hit! I highly recommend this one!!

    I made this and got raves! My sis-in-law asked me for the recipe. She said she'd substitute the sour cream with yogurt since she's lactose intolerant. I used lite sour cream. It was fantastic!
