    The main is chili and I will be placing either cornbread or tortilla chips on tables with all the fixins (cheese, onion, sour cream etc.). I want to serve a salad of some sort before the chili. I had originally been dying to serve roasted beet and goat cheese salad with candied nuts. Now this seems to not to flow at all.

    The party is on the weekend of the 24th and I am expecting 15 guests. Any ideas?

    These are excellent salad recipes to serve with chili:

    CORNBREAD SALAD RECIPE -
    http://www.southernplate.com/2012/07/cornbread-salad.html
    Ingredients:
    1 pan cornbread (see recipe here or use a package of cornbread mix)
    1 cup diced onions
    1 bell pepper, seeded and diced
    1 cup diced tomatoes
    15 ounce can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 pound bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
    2-3 cups mayonnaise (I used two)
    Instructions
    Bake cornbread. Cool and crumble and place in large bowl. Add in onions, bell pepper, diced tomatoes, corn, and bacon. Stir until well combined.
    In a separate bowl, place mayo and ranch mix (If using). Stir until well blended. Skip this step if using plain mayo.
    Add mayonnaise mixture to salad and stir until fully mixed. Cover and refrigerate at least two hours before serving. ENJOY!

    Linda Says: There are lots of ways to adjust this to suit your own taste by adding or leaving out ingredients. Corn or pinto beans (drained) can be added as can diced pickles or black olives or grated cheddar. I prefer the more plain one but with all that lovely mayonnaise there isn't much that can mess it up.

    You can also omit the beans included in these recipes, if you want:

    I would absolutely go with this. Too much is not a good thing to me. This is a nice salad which highlights all the flavors in the chili. The chili is your main dish. NOT the salad.

    I would add some olives and maybe cucumbers to the salad, just to give a few more veggies; but overall the salad looks delicious as is.

    That would be my first choice for sure.

    A chili dinner, is always for me ... salad, corn bread, and chili. 3 must haves when you have chili.

    I don't agree with that because the cornbread served with chili is already included in any of the excellent salad like those posted above.icon_wink.gif

    It is not too much and this is my point of view.

    I missed that many corn chips; but I would use them if anything as a garnish. I don't think they are needed. I would not add them; but I would make corn bread.
    Sorry, missed that many, I saw them, but figured it was a garnish. I would still make the salad
