  • Preparation:
    Make up the cornbread, cool. Stir together salad dressing mix, sour cream and mayonnaise until blended; set aside. Combine tomatoes, bell peppers and onions. Toss gently. Crumble 1/2 of the cornbread into a large bowl. Top with half each of beans, tomato mixture, cheese, bacon, corn and dressing mixture. Repeat layers. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours. When ready to serve, stir the whole mess together!

    This is just wonderful!! I make extra cornbread as this salad is very moist, and it's great the next day to have fresh cornbread to mix with leftover salad.

    This is also great without ranch dressing package mix. Plus, you may add any veggies you want.
