I am not welcome at my husband's family functions UNLESS I bring this salad. Tried it for a Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago and it was a HUGE hit. There is significant prep involved, but I now use a mini-chopper which helps cut donwn on the chopping time. I do use a little less cornbread than what it calls for to make the cornbread layers a little thinner. I think this is an adaptable recipe -- I've used red peppers if I don't have enough green, green onions if I don't have enough regular onions. The only non-negotiables are the sweet pickles and the bacon. This is a standard in my repetoire now!
My family and I did not care for this recipe. Other recipes I have tried like this also had some pinto beans and lots of other ingredients. This recipe needs alot of help so you can taste more than corn bread and onions. Its a lot of work for not much taste.
This is a great recipe for church and family dinners. It is very pretty when prepared in a clear glass bowl.
When I first read this recipe I thought it sounded a little strange but we love corn bread and this salad was so good. My family just loved it. You just have to try it.
The ruler I use for the success of a recipe is "how many copies of this recipe do people want?" This recipe was a total success. At least four people at the dinner asked for it. I used green/orange bell pepper (for added color)and made the corn bread in a cast iron skillet in the oven (added crispness). AWSOME. Thanks Amy!
After fixing this for a Ladies' Luncheon, everyone asked me for this recipe! I think that the sweet pickles and juice are the secret to this dish. I use real bacon pieces instead of cooking bacon and just mix all ingredients together in a bowl. It is just as good and cuts the prep time!
I have made this recipe 4 times now and every time it has been a huge success. I make my own cornbread recipe and just put it in a 9x13 pan as I find this just as fast and probably wouldn't always have the mix in the house. Even the kids loved it. It is so different from the usual salad.
I always make too much cornbread.
Tasty way to use these leftovers and
my husband LOVES it.
