Layered Cornbread Salad

65

This layered cornbread salad is delicious, even better if you make it ahead of time and let the flavors come together overnight. *For a more SOUTHWEST FLAVOR: You can also change the recipe by using black beans, 1 tsp of Cumin, 1/2 tsp of Cayenne pepper to the dressing and 1/2 c of Cilantro to the veggies. Also use Mexican blend cheese instead of cheddar. Garnish top with Cilantro. I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as mine does.
