I made this salad for dinner last night and it was a hit! My 8 year old grandson asked his usual question whenever he realizes that I am preparing dinner, "What are you cooking?" When I told him the night's menu, he wanted to know what other sides we should add to the menu. My response was to tell him what the ingredients were and that I considered southern cornbread a meal within itself. later, while he was eating, he said "Granny this cornbread salad is delicious!" The rest of the family also loved it. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I just l I did add meat and a leafy salad.

Very good and pretty to serve. I followed the recipe except for the beans. I used one can pinto and one can of black beans. I also used canned corn because that is what I had on hand. I thought this would turn into a big pile of mush but it didn't. Kids wouldn't go near it but all the adults love it. Thanks for posting.

Great salad. I've been making this for years. Sometimes I sub chili beans for the pinto beans and I usually eliminate the bacon to make it purely vegetarian.
