  3. Although I've heard of Cornbread Salad before I've never had it. I'm definitely trying this recipe.

    I made Enchilada Meatballs to take with us on our Texas trip (meatball sandwiches in the trailer). That recipe uses cornbread made from a mix for the filler and some taco seasoning is added to the mix. I think that might be how I'd mix up the cornbread for this dish too. Just a suggestion.

  4. This a really a great potluck salad. Very unusual, I wasn't sure I'd like it...but the combination really clicks! Betty is my first cousin, Uncle Tracey and Aunt Zesta's third daughter.
