A Cut & Trim Turn Family Favorite

Sometimes when you go to the beauty salon you come home with more than just a haircut. Several years ago my hairdresser gave me a taste of something that she and the other ladies were having for lunch that day. I will admit, I was a bit leery of it at first, but after just one bite...I was hooked. So not only did I come home that day with a new "do" I came home with a recipe that became a family favorite.

Mexican Cornbread Salad
1 pan of cooked jalapeno cornbread; cooled and crumbled (or one pkg. store bought Mexican style cornbread mix; cooked, cooled & crumbled)
1 small tomato; diced
1 medium-large green bell pepper; diced
1 bunch green onions; diced (or 1/4 of a yellow onion; diced)
1 small can shoe peg corn; drained (or 2/3 can of whole sweet kernel corn; drained)
3/4 c. mayonnaise
3/4 c. sour cream
1 c. shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterrey jack, Colby or the like)
1/2 tsp. chili powder (more or less to your taste)
salt & pepper to taste






In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir to mix well. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to chill or longer. Serve cool.
