Easy Cornbread Salad Recipe


Cornbread salads were developed by thrifty southern cooks who were trying to find a use for day-old cornbread, since stale cornbread never tastes as good as fresh. This Easy Cornbread Salad is my version and was adapted from an old recipe given to me by my Kentucky-born Mother-in-Law, Gwen. This salad is so popular with family and friends, that I actually bake a 6 ounce package of cornbread mix specifically so I can make the salad, or I double the recipe when making cornbread so that Iíll have enough. Cornbread freezes well, so leftovers can be frozen in a Ziploc-type bag if it isnít convenient to make the salad the next day or two after serving cornbread.

The thing I like about this salad is that the cornbread doesnít get soggy, since a creamy thick ranch dressing is used rather than a thin vinaigrette. Itís a hearty salad, and ham or chicken could be added to make it a main dish salad.

Yankee notes: If you were not born in the South (US) and think sweet cornbread is ďcornbread,Ē you are sadly mistaken; Southernerís say, ďIf itís made with sugar, it ainít cornbread!Ē When making this salad, make sure you use a cornbread mix that doesnít contain sugar. As far as cornbread mixes go, Jiffy Brand, which my children and I like best, is delicious, but isnít suitable for this salad since itís sweet. The non-sweet variety is available in places other than the South under several brands; my grocery stores (in Utah) carry a cornbread mix called Gladiola, which is made by Martha White, a popular southern brand; it passes for genuine cornbread as far as my southern- born husband is concerned.
