Cornbread Salad

Cornbread Salad

This one might seem a little odd, at first. A salad, made from cornbread? There is an Italian bread salad, Panzanella. Why not a cornbread salad? It is rich and tasty. It is also a great way to use up cornbread or muffins that are a couple of days old. Waste not, want not.

I made this salad for a few friends recently and it was really well received. I think people were surprised they liked it. So if you are looking for something “new” to take to your next cookout, you might want to give a cornbread salad a try.

Cornbread Salad

4 c. crumbled cornbread or corn muffins

1 c. shredded mild cheese

1 sweet red pepper seeded and diced

1 c. diced celery

½ c. diced green onion

4 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and chopped

¼ c. chopped parsley

1-1 ½ c. mayonnaise, sometimes I use potato salad dressing or even slaw dressing 

2 c. diced fresh tomatoes

1 c. toasted pecans

paprika for sprinkling on the top, optional

Place cornbread and next 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in dressing until desired moistness is achieved. Chill and stir in tomato and nut just before serving. Sprinkle with paprika if you like. Serves 6.

Note: You can add whole kernel corn, if you like.
