Crumbled cornbread layered with veggies and Ranch dressing for a tasty Cornbread Salad that’s party perfect!
Remember that delicious Sweet & Simple Cornbread recipe I shared with you on Tuesday? Well, as promised, I’m showing you how you can use half of it to make this crazy delicious salad!
I served this Cornbread Salad in individual jars alongside barbeque at a little party last weekend, and talk about a hit! Everyone went on and on about how cute and yummy they were.
The salad is pretty quick to layer together and super easy to serve and eat at a party or large family gathering. You could also layer all the ingredients in a large salad bowl for everyone to scoop right out of.
We love this cornbread salad and hope that y’all will too!
