Layered Cornbread Salad #SaveALotInsiders

I was given the fun task of creating a new spring salad recipe for Save A Lot Insiders!  I am such a huge fan of layered salads and make my 7 layer salad every chance I get.  I have seen a cornbread salad in a lot of different places and decided to incorporate two of my favorite foods; 7 layer salad and corn bread!  This turned out amazing and I just couldn’t wait to share it with all of you 😀  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
