5 stars from 1 rating of Delicious Cornbread Salad

A Layered Southern Creation

Cornbread salad is an American dish with southern roots. It is prepared with cornbread, vegetables, and other ingredients. Typically this dish is served chilled in a glass bowl or dish. It is often layered but can be served all mixed in together. Cornbread is the base for this salad. It can be a colorful dish when you use a variety of colorful vegetables such as cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, scallions, and peppers. It also incorporates mayonnaise, ranch dressing, or sour cream to moisten the salad.

This is a delicious side item for fried chicken or pork chops and good ole southern style greens. Enjoy!

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Several Servings


  • 1 6 oz box cornbread mix
  • 1 12 oz package bacon
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle juice
  • 2-3 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise, (a little more or less to taste)


  1. Prepare the cornbread according to the package directions. Cool so that you can touch it. Crumble the cornbread into small pieces in a large bowl.
  2. Cook the bacon until crispy. Drain the grease off. Crumble the bacon up into pieces.
  3. Use a large glass bowl and layer the crumbled cornbread, 1/2 the pickle relish, juice, tomatoes, pepper, onion, bacon, and mayo. Repeat the layers. (Reserve a little bit of the tomatoes and bacon to garnish the top.)
  4. The ingredients can be mixed all together if you prefer -- same delicious taste, less work. Enjoy this with some southern fried chicken or pork chops and serve with greens. YUM!

      LA thanks so much. Try to substitute either ranch dressing or sour cream if your hubby is not a fan of mayo. Thanks for visiting & hope you come back soon.

      Beccacooling, You had me at cornbread! OMG this sounds so good. Bacon, Onions, Cornbread. This is on the shopping list for tomorrow night. Could you suggest an alternative to the mayo. My husband will not eat anything with mayo. He won't even kiss me if I have eaten it without brushing my teeth. Come to think of it, I'll make the whole thing for myself. Nevermind. :)
