Cornbread Salad

Different and delicious! This has become a favorite of our extended family and shows up at all the summer picnics.  It is soooo good!

Cornbread Salad
1 pkg. cornbread mix, prepared as directed (8x8 pan)
3 c. chopped tomatoes
1 c. chopped onion (red is my favorite in this)
1 c. chopped green pepper
1/2 c. chopped sweet pickles
12 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. sweet pickle juice
Parmesan cheese, for topping

Crumble 1/2 of prepared cornbread into bottom of large bowl (this is the one you will serve the salad from).  In another bowl, mix vegetables and bacon, blend well.  Spoon half of vegetable mixture over cornbread.  Stir mayo and pickle juice together; spread half of dressing over vegetables.  Repeat layers and sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese.  Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving. 

Notes: if you want to make the cornbread from scratch, here is a recipe, Favorite Cornbread .
