I needed to use up some leftover cornbread from a batch that had come out a little dry. I remembered a dear friend made cornbread salad at a restaurant she worked at years ago, so I came looking for something along that line. This seemed to be a fresher take on what I remembered. It's a colorful, tasty salad. I used frozen corn that I quickly thawed with running water and I added a some crumbled bacon. I also subbed 1/2 mayo, 1/2 Miracle Whip for the dressing since my husband doesn't care for ranch, but ranch is great with just about anything, so I know it would be great with this! And you don't really have to chill it for 4 hours if you're in a pinch for time as I was; half hour got it nicely chilled.
