Recipe by Sharon123

Adapted from a recipe in Southern Living, this is a pretty salad that is sure to please! If you can't find Mexican cornbread mix, add in 1 4 0z. can green chili peppers and 1 15 oz. can creamed corn to the regular cornbread recipe, or make one of the fabulous recipes for it here on Zaar!

I liked this salad. It looked absolutely stunning in the bowl with all the pretty layers! I did feel that it was lacking a lot in the flavor department though...which was surprising. I think when I make it next time, I will add cilantro and maybe some chopped jalapeno to the mix. I made my own cornbread with green chiles, roasted red peppers and creamed corn. This is definitely a good's probably just my southwestern taste buds expecting more punch. Thank you for the recipe!
