Layered Cornbread Salad

When the garden comes in, we harvest the veggies and layer them with cornbread and sweet relish for this snappy salad. Everyone wants seconds. —Rebecca Clark, Warrior, Alabama

    I make this just a little different, that you mix it all together. My recipe doesn't have beans or bacon in it, but in my opinion, it can only make it better. Looking forward to trying this version very soon. We love the freshness of the veggies in this.
