I had a corn muffin recipe that turned out too dense. I didn't want to waste it, so I looked for a cornbread salad recipe (I had heard about it on a Game). I chose this bcz it didn't include ingredients in the cornbread. I halved the recipe and it made a big bowl. I used lowfat sour cream and yogurt mix. Used black beans, no bell peppers. This turned out great! My parents loved it too. I let it sit in the fridge for 3 hours. I forgot to put the dressing on the first layer, but it all worked out fine.
