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 recipe...it's probably just my southwestern taste buds expecting more punch. Thank you for the recipe!

I did make some changes to this recipe, I used my The Best Honey Cornbread which worked out well, boxed cornbread mixes are very hard to find in my city, and also used my own ranch dressing recipe, and used real bacon, this is one of those salads I could eat everyday of the week it is *that* delicious, thank you for sharing this great recipe Sharon!...Kitten:)

Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum! Only wish that we had more here for dinner . . . I'm ill from eating so much! DH was late for dinner and I was concerned that it had set too long, but no problem! Cut the recipe in half. Only change I made was used red onions instead of green onions (love the crunch of red onions). Used leftover Z'tejas Cornbread and Kittencal's Milk Boiled Corn on the Cob! Thanks Sharon for sharing!

I've been making this salad for a few years & it's always a huge hit. The only difference is that I add 1 lb. of cooked & crumbled bacon which makes it over the top flavorwise.

WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Let me start off by saying I had never heard of cornbread salad and neither had the colleagues I made it for. Let me tell you, we sure know what it is now and boy do we love it! :) I couldn't find Mexican cornbread mix so I followed the suggestion in the description and added a can of green chilies and a can of creamed corn. The recipe didn't say when to add the bacon bits so I sprinkled them on top of the green onions in each layer. I put it together late yesterday, chilled it overnight and took it to lunch today. This salad was thoroughly enjoyed (devoured) by all! Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe, Sharon!

This was beautiful but we did not like it. Too much cornbread, too little romaine. The cornbread was soggy. I will make a variation, leaving out the cornbread and using 2 bunches (not heads) of romaine.
