So, Friday I had to take something to work for our monthly Birthday potluck. And since I had bell peppers growing in the garden, I decided whatever I took must include bell pepper.
One of my favorite recipes for large groups is my Cornbread Salad recipe. (When you see the ingredients, you will understand why you wouldn’t want to make this for yourself to be eaten in one sitting) although, ahem, it can be done.
This recipe came from one of my home health patients from several years ago, Mrs. Birdsong. Now I probably visited Mrs. Birdsong a total of two times (I was filling in for her regular nurse) but we had an immediate comraderie. She loved to garden and she loved to cook. I think of her whenever I make this.
2 packages of Mexican cornbread prepared according to package directions
2 bell peppers, diced
2 large tomatoes, diced
1 onion, diced
1 lb. bacon fried til crispy
1 pint Hellman’s mayonnaise
Crumble the cornbread and bacon. Add the bell pepper, tomatoes and onion. Stir in the mayonnaise and mix well.
It was a lot of fun to be able to go out into the garden and pick the bell peppers for this. My tomatoes are not ready yet or they would have been used as well. This is what I have looked forward to all of this growing season and there’s more to come!!! cause I’ve got blooms on my cucumber vines…….
That’s what I’m talking about….
