I am not welcome at my husband's family functions UNLESS I bring this salad. Tried it for a Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago and it was a HUGE hit. There is significant prep involved but I now use a mini-chopper which helps cut donwn on the chopping time. I do use a little less cornbread than what it calls for to make the cornbread layers a little thinner. I think this is an adaptable recipe -- I've used red peppers if I don't have enough green green onions if I don't have enough regular onions. The only non-negotiables are the sweet pickles and the bacon. This is a standard in my repetoire now! Read More

My family and I did not care for this recipe. Other recipes I have tried like this also had some pinto beans and lots of other ingredients. This recipe needs alot of help so you can taste more than corn bread and onions. Its a lot of work for not much taste. Read More

I have made this recipe 4 times now and every time it has been a huge success. I make my own cornbread recipe and just put it in a 9x13 pan as I find this just as fast and probably wouldn't always have the mix in the house. Even the kids loved it. It is so different from the usual salad. Marilyn Read More

After fixing this for a Ladies' Luncheon everyone asked me for this recipe! I think that the sweet pickles and juice are the secret to this dish. I use real bacon pieces instead of cooking bacon and just mix all ingredients together in a bowl. It is just as good and cuts the prep time! Read More

The ruler I use for the success of a recipe is "how many copies of this recipe do people want?" This recipe was a total success. At least four people at the dinner asked for it. I used green/orange bell pepper (for added color)and made the corn bread in a cast iron skillet in the oven (added crispness). AWSOME. Thanks Amy! Read More

This was ok. I brought it to a family reunion and people liked it but I personally didn't care for it all that much. Just a little too dry and bland. Maybe as one reviewer did I should have used less cornbread. It's different though and pretty. Read More
