Hard Eight’s Cornbread Salad Recipe

There’s a BBQ restaurant in Roanoke, TX that is AWESOME! One of my favorite side dishes is the Cornbread salad. It’s like some kind of addictive crack salad! I went on an online search for the recipe and this is the best one I could find. The blogger claims she got it from the manager. I made it and it’s pretty darn good.

Hard Eight’s Cornbread Salad is a little on the dry side and that’s why you have to eat it with their pinto beans and jalapeno sweet corn – my oh my!

It’s easy as pie! Just make two boxes of cornbread mix


Chop up a few fresh ingredients and BACON and CHEESE!


Mix in a little Miracle Whip and voila! Delish!

Here’s the recipe from www. whatwearecookingnow.blogspot.com
