I love that this is called Back Home Cornbread Salad because it is from my hometown church cookbook!  It is a layered salad that is beautiful but so so good.  A recipe that will fascinate people but it’s super easy to put together.

A small-town church cookbook is an amazing source – no one cooks like church ladies!  This recipe is from Peggy, I love Peggy.  Of course, I’ll be honest there is no one in the church I grew up in that I don’t love and cook, man can all of them cook!

Layered salads were always a part of church potlucks. I can remember seeing them on the food table and just hoping that by the time I got through the line there was still some there. You know, you close your eyes for the prayer but keep peeking, wondering how the line will work and how you can get at the beginning of the line.

This recipe can be made with homemade cornbread but in all honesty, I make it with boughten cornbread.  It’s just as good and makes it super easy since you can make this a day ahead and mostly this is just layering ingredients!

Those layers – each one as delicious as the next but together they are amazing! But while they look amazing they are really easy to assemble so don’t let them deter you from making this!

  1. Did you use tomatoes? The image of your prepared Cornbread Salad, looks like tomatoes. Or, could that be red peppers instead of green peppers? I don’t see green peppers in the image? Just wondering. Thanks!

      You have good eyes! Thanks for catching that – I used red peppers instead of green because I like red better! But there is also diced tomatoes in there too!

      The cornbread? If so, yes – I use boughten because I’m a poor planner and don’t have time to make fresh cornbread or I end up eating the fresh corn bread!

      Yes, “boughten”….it’s Southern for “purchased”. Although I am a native Oregonian, all of Momma’s family was from the south. LOL, I think it makes me bilingual….

      No it doesn’t appear to – I’ve never made it the night before but I have had leftovers and it doesn’t hurt it at all!

      I use Jiffy corn bread mix and add 1 small can diced green chilies, hot or mild, to the mix before baking. So good!

  2. I love cornbread salad and have been making it for years. My daughter borrowed my recipe to share with the people in her office, guess what, I never got it back, so I have been trying to find one on Pinterest to jog my memory. This one is pretty close except I use tomatoes and bacon and mix those in with the green onion and bell pepper and layer it before the creamy mixture. Also, I do not rinse my pinto beans. To me, it gives it a little moisture so it is not so dry.
